In order to accommodate future program enhancements, PIAS’ module Layout has been updated as per May 18, 2017. As usual, this format update is upwards compatible, which means that newer PIAS versions can read the old format, but older versions cannot read the new format. So, in order to be prepared to receive PIAS files in the contemporary format, users are advised to update PIAS at a convenient moment.

PIAS’ Probdam module is equipped with functions for damage case generation and for the automatic determination of damage boundaries. The algorithm for the latter has been enhanced for two reasons:
The update of this algorithm has three consequences:
A version of PIAS’ Probdam with this enhanced algorithm will be available for download from September 6, 2016.

Although the freeboard calculation module of PIAS is not core of the suite, it is still intensively used in many phases of the ship design process. For that reason we have taken up this module — from which the origin lies 20 years back — and brought it in line with the look and feel of the other PIAS modules. One enhancement is that hullform parameters can now directly be derived from PIAS’ hull model. The applied algorithms remains unchanged, so computation results will not be affected.
