Apart from its role as developer and supplier of naval architectural software, SARC is also heaviliy involved with the design of ships and other floating structures, as well as related consultancy and in all kinds of design calculations. Since it was established in 1980, SARC has been involved with more than 2300 projects, such as:
- Intact stability calculations.
- Calculations of longitudinal strength.
- Damage stability, both deterministic and probabilistic.
- Grain stability according to the Grain Code.
- Fairing of and shell plate expansions for a superstructure of a mega yacht.
- Divisibility calculations for vessels navigating the river Rhine.
- Production fairing of ship hulls.
- Shell plate expansions of developable shell plates.
- Calculations of forces and moments of a moveable flood barrier.
- Consultancy with respect to the maintenance of a hydro-electrical power dam.
- Tank sounding calculations.
- Design of inland waterway passenger vessels.
- Shell plate expansions for curved shell plates (including templates).
- Comparative study on the structural strength properties of a certain class if inland waterway vessels.
Design calculations on submersible vessels (float-on float-off).
- Optimization of an existing cargo vessel, with respect to probabilistic damage stability.
- Speed and power predictions.
- Optimization of trim, in order to minimize resistance.
- Stability calculations for (split) hopper dredgers (both intact and damaged)
- Floatability calculations of floating motorway tunnel elements.
- Intact and damage stability calculations of jack-up platforms.
- Sea keeping calculations of offshore transports.
- Comparitive study of damage stability of hopper dredgers.
- Design, fairing and shell plate expansions of a harbour tug.
- Stability and ballast calculations for a crane barge.
- Inclining tests.
- Lightweight checks.
- Stability calculations for inland waterway container vessel designed for the so called “estuary traffic”, which means in this particular case that the vessel is allowed to sail from the inland waterways to Port Zeebrugge through coastal waters. This requires different sets of stability requirements for the sea state and for inland waterways.
- Measurements of hull forms by means of photogrammetry.
- Stability analysis of a floating swimming pool.
