Our naval architects are heavily involved with the design of vessels and floating structures of all shapes and sizes, on a daily basis. Whether you just need some advice, or you're looking to outsource your design calculations: our team is ready to help.
Intact stability calculations for all types of vessels and floating structures, including tankers, inland waterway vessels, (split) hopper dredgers, jack-up platforms, and crane barges.
Deterministic or probabilistic damage stability calculations for all types of vessels, including hopper dredgers.
Grain stability calculations in accordance with the Grain Code.
Calculations based on tank sounding measurements.
Optimization of existing cargo vessels with respect to probabilistic damage stability. Trim optimizations to minimize resistance. Determining a vessel's expected power and speed.
Comparative studies on a vessel's structural integrity and damage stability.
Design of vessels of various types, including inland waterway passenger vessels and float-on/float-off submersible vessels.
Hull form fairing
Vessel fairing and shell plate expansions of all types of vessels. Adjust hull forms to match developable shell plates or include templates for curved shell plates.
Measure an existing hull form by means of photogrammetry.
Lightweight checks and inclining tests.
Calculations of structural strength properties, including longitudinal strength.
Calculation of floatability, forces and moments of floating structures, including jack-up platforms, floating motorway tunnel elements, floating swimming pools, and moveable flood barriers.
Seakeeping calculations of offshore transports.
Some vessels require additional non-standard calculations we may be able to offer. For example, we offer ballast calculations for crane barges, and stability calculations for 'estuary traffic' inland waterway vessels.
Being experts in the field of many aspects covered by our software, SARC shares its knowledge by means of courses or training. These can either be given at SARC's office in Bussum, or on-site at the client's premises. Course subjects have been in the past:
Our naval experts provide trainings in English, Dutch, and German.
