Structural Analysis and Design Software for Shipbuilding

Structural Analysis 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 (such as 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.

Structural FEM Analysis and Design

The structural analysis software RFEM 6 is the basis of a modular program family. The main program RFEM is used to define structures, materials, and loads for planar and spatial structural systems consisting of plates, walls, shells, and members. The program also allows you to create combined structures as well as model solid and contact elements.

Structural Frame & Truss Analysis Software

The structural frame analysis software RSTAB 9 has a similar range of functions as the FEA software RFEM. Due to the special attention to beam, frame, or truss structures, it is very easy to use and for many years, it has been the best choice for the structural analysis and design of pure structural member models.

Add-ons and Add-on Modules for Design in Shipbuilding and of Floating Bodies

For structural analysis and design in shipbuilding and of floating bodies, we recommend the add-ons and add-on modules of the Steel Structures industry.

Interfaces for Data Exchange

The structural analysis software provided by Dlubal Software can be integrated seamlessly into the Building Information Modeling (BIM) process. The large number of interfaces ensures the data exchange of digital building models with RFEM or RSTAB.

The web service (programmable interface) can be used to read or write data from/to RFEM and RSTAB.
