SARC is involved in the national research program ‘Innovero’, which is aimed at research into and development of a distributed ship design platform. One of the focus points of Innovero is an improved collaboration between, or even integration of, analysis tools and generic CAD-systems. For that purpose a novel modeling method has been developed to represent the internal geometry of the ship, i.e. of compartments, bulkheads and decks.
This method has been implemented in a new PIAS module, which will replace PIAS’ present COMPART module, and which has been taken into the final testing phase at SARC in the spring of 2011.
On this page screenshots and some video's of this module are presented, while further information can be found in the following downloads:

- Powerpoint sheets as presented at the user information day (‘SARCdag’) of May 27, 2011
