Advanced Initial Vessel Design

Initial vessel design requires high precision and fast propagation

3D model of a hull design in the early stages, demonstrating the abilities of the Advanced Initial Vessel Design feature in FORAN

Most of the cost of the ship is committed in the initial vessel design stage, where fast propagation of design changes and the highest precision are required. The initial design comprises the hull forms, general arrangement, and naval architecture calculations, all integrated with the other design disciplines, ensuring data integrity, fast propagation of changes, multi-user access, and the reuse of information in later stages.

FORAN can define any hull form from scratch or import third-party forms during the initial vessel design stage. It performs transformations and manages the lofting and fairing. The topological model based on references allows the fast generation of decks and bulkheads.

  • The solution is integrated with the rest of FORAN design disciplines (Oracle database) or in a standalone format (SQLite database).
  • The possibility to perform concurrent engineering ensures data integrity.
  • The topology and the automation of tasks accelerate the model definition, the study of different design alternatives, and the propagation of changes.
  • Advanced capability for the management of hull forms
  • A highly innovative 3D general arrangement avoids errors and inconsistencies.
  • Powerful calculation and user-friendly interface for the naval architecture solution with continuous update of regulations

FORAN

Construction of a ship at a shipyard, made efficient through FORAN ship design software

Used at every stage of the design and production of a vessel, FORAN is the only ship design software of its kind as it encompasses every aspect of shipbuilding in a fully integrated manner. It is currently licensed at more than 150 shipyards and design offices in 40 countries.
