Structural Engineering Software for Shipbuilding and Floating Bodies
The structural engineering programs RFEM and RSTAB are suited very well for structural analysis of ships or ship components (for example ship cranes, masts, hulls, pulleys). It is also possible to consider nonlinearities such as cables and to perform dynamic, stability, and buckling analyses. Moreover, it is possible to model and design shipping containers in RFEM.
Furthermore, it is possible to design floating bodies, such as pontoons, floating jetties, inflatable islands, special rafts, floating houses, houseboats, dredgers, floating cranes, et cetera.
