Basic understanding of ship structures and hull strength. Knowledge about the frame analysis program 3D Beam, course NA-08, and the old version of Nauticus Hull, course NA-02, is an advantage, but not required.
NA-03 Nauticus Hull rule check - introducing next generation modelling tool
Nauticus Hull is a ship structural analysis and design program for rule compliance checks on hull girder strength, and plate and stiffener scantling checks for a hull cross section.
A new version of the program, including a new scantlings modelling tool and a new approach for compartment definitions, is introduced in 2018.
The main focus is on cross-section modelling and analyses executions. The course covers how to use the software for DNV GL Rules and Common Structural Rules for Bulk Carriers and Oil Tankers (CSR BC & OT).
After the course, you should be able to use Nauticus Hull to carry out compliance checks on the hull girder and cross sections according to rule requirements.
The following topics will be covered:
- Describing ship particulars and main data
- Describing tank plan, compartments and loads
- Scantlings modelling
- Prescriptive rule check analyses
- Fatigue analyses
- Results presentation
Naval architects, designers, hull structural engineers and approval engineers with no experience in using the new version of Nauticus Hull for rule check analyses.
