Leading Classification Society ClassNK has released the latest version of its design support software PrimeShip-HULL (HCSR) Ver.8.0.0
The new version incorporates the latest rule amendments to IACS Common Structural Rules for bulk carriers and oil tankers based on feedback from the industry.
ClassNK is actively engaged in the research and development of new technology based on the technical experience it has accumulated over more than a century of ship classification. The result of these efforts is the integrated, comprehensive approach to total ship care known as PrimeShip, the collective name for the entire range of ClassNK’s specially designed technical services.
The PrimeShip service suite has been designed to prevent pollution of the marine environment and to help ensure the comprehensive safety of ships at every stage of a ship’s life from inception and design, through construction, operation, management, maintenance, and related activities.
In addition to incorporating the latest rule amendments, various functional improvements are implemented to PrimeShip-HULL (HCSR) including prescriptive calculation software and direct strength assessment software.
In particular, the ’auto iteration’ function has been added in the ’design support function’ for the yield and buckling assessment of direct strength assessment software. This function allows designers to reduce the workload of calculating the optimised thickness.
PrimeShip-HULL (HCSR) Ver.8.0.0 was developed by ClassNK to offer the industry the highest level of support in the design of safer ships.
