Structural Design

Our structural design professionals carry out complex calculations to make sure the strength requirements for a vessel or other structure are met in all defined conditions. This is part of the job for every design and engineering process, especially when talking about basic design stages. Next to that, we can also provide solutions to specific separate structural issues. Our goal is always to determine the best possible construction in close cooperation with our client.

Optimum construction calculation

Our specialists are responsible for the structural design of ships, offshore units and related constructions. An important aspect of this is the strength verification based on the criteria of classification societies and other design codes. This goes hand in hand with performing optimizations in the area of steel weight and production efficiency. Where deemed necessary, calculations based on Finite Element Analysis (FEA) are carried out and described in reports. These competencies also enable CIG to assist you with obtaining structural approval of classification societies. Next to that, we can perform feasibility studies for new equipment or conversions of existing ships and platforms.

Experience, knowledge and partnership

CIG has decades of experience in structural design in shipbuilding projects and possesses in-depth knowledge of the relevant rules and regulations. Our strength lies in applying our knowledge and experience in close consultation with you as our client in order to determine the most efficient construction. We take all the issues off your hands and provide a solution that is fully optimized towards all wishes and requirements.
