Build new horizons

Naval architecture is a particularly challenging area and consists of optimising all the design parameters for a vessel, which are all interdependent. It relates to the shape of a hull as regards displacement, resistance to forward movement, intact stability and seakeeping, subdivision of vessels, fittings, weight distribution, damage stability, etc.

This optimisation forms the subject of iterative «vessel design loops» covering all these aspects, from initial ones devoted to draft design studies, to the final loop for detailed studies, where all the parameters are fixed. In addition, the design of a vessel must comply with a very strict framework, by conforming with international maritime or inland waterways regulations, as validated by classification companies such as Bureau Veritas, Det Norske Veritas and Lloyds Register..

The + strength of SEGULA Technologies
SEGULA Technologies teams have acquired recognised expertise, in particular in relation to the design of vessel structures and dimensioning: statutory structural calculations, vibration calculations, statutory vessel calculations under collision conditions, dimensioning calculations for deck equipment. In addition, the group develops and markets a load calculator, «STABILOAD», which is designed for use on the bridges of vessels. It allows the crew to monitor safety parameters: intact or damage stability, strength of the hull girder depending on the load, management of the latter and ship planning.
