Structural Analysis

Hull structure: it keeps the water on the outside of your ship.  From machinery foundations to complete hull design, ACMA knows structures inside and out. Past work includes all the following and more:

  • Hull scantlings
  • Rule calculations
  • Foundation design
  • Crane installation
  • Large structure installation
  • Hull girder strength
  • Global hull FEA
  • Local FEA
  • Thermal FEA
  • Fatigue analysis (FEA and classic)
  • Deflection analysis
  • Composite analysis

We have decades of expertise in structural design and analysis. Our past work ranges from full LNG tanks to simple beam bending. We’ve worked with class societies on anything from classic workboats to unprecedented new vessels. Steel, aluminum, composites – we can design with any material.
