Envelope curve longitudinal strength

Posted on December 22, 2022

There is also the option to calculate and output the so-called ‘Envelope curve’. With this option, the envelope upper and lower limits are calculated of the occurring shear forces and moments based on the curves of the selected loading conditions. This envelope curve can be used to determine how strong the ship should be at certain longitudinal positions. Thus, it is really a design tool.
