Structural Engineering

We are providing structural engineering services and calculations for various topics:

  • Finite element Method (FEM) calculations, beams, shell​
  • Ultimate Limit State (ULS) and Accidental Limit State (ALS)
  • Fatigue Limit State (FLS)
  • Hyper fine mesh for fatigue analysis
  • Structural design dimensioning and optimisation, code checks towards class requirements
  • Complete Ship Model, midship sections, scantling
  • Foundations, masts, equipment integration, welding
  • Lightweight estimate​
  • Interaction Wave/structure​
  • Steel, aluminum, alloys
  • Structures composites
  • 2D structural drawings and 3D models​ using DRAFTSIGHT, AUTOCAD and RHINOCEROS
