SSI 30th Anniversary
        • Design
        • The most significant opportunities to impact the cost of building and operating a ship are found in the design and engineering phase.

          Initial Design  |  Basic Design  |  Detailed Design

        • Build
        • Even a smaller shipbuilding project is immense in scope and scale. Manage the challenges that are unique to ship construction.

          Prepare  |  Fabricate  |  Assemble

        • Maintain
        • With the majority of a ship’s life taking place after it’s been built, it’s crucial to ensure that the organization has a clear picture of the vessel at all times.

          Assess  |  Manage  |  Repair / Refit

        • Nexus
        • SSI Nexus is the place where users, creators, & implementers of SSI software get together. Here they discuss best practices & industry trends, tackle common challenges, gain access to the latest software, and provide input into the future of the products that bring them together.

        • MyLearning
        • SSI MyLearning is where SSI users can access detailed training exercises, materials, courses, and certifications. The self-directed training curriculum ensures that training happens on your schedule and when you need it most.

        • SSI Blogs
        • The SSI blog is your place to get insights into the intersection of shipbuilding and technology, how our industry is moving forward, and keep up with SSI news. It’s the only place to read the latest from Denis Morais and Darren Larkins, SSI’s co-CEOs.

Presented by Tiago Fernandes, Aerospace Engineer at Vera Navis
Over the past years, we witnessed a demand for increasing internal pressure on the cargo tank of specialized vessels. Despite all the experience in designing different vessel types, we found the need to use computational tools (FEM) to evaluate and re-design the main structure according to all new operational conditions.
At the beginning of the project we defined which were the more demanding operational load cases for the structure. Despite many advances and setbacks throughout the entire project, the team reached a solution to satisfy the client’s needs and, bearing in mind all the construction processes, to avoid complex challenges at future phases.
The global overview of the project, using cross-disciplinary and collective constructivism, contributed to a better end-product with lower risks and bottlenecks throughout the certification and construction phases of the vessel.
For SSI Conference 2019 EMEA, we gathered experts from across shipbuilding in Lisbon, Portugal to get their straightforward, easily implemented, takes on the topics that impact our industry most.
