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.

Presented by Tom Matthews, Key Account Manager at STRUCTeam Ltd.

STRUCTeam, a group of structural engineers and material scientists who specialise in composite materials and regularly use FE software to run models and perform load analysis recognised that there wasn’t a software on the market designed specifically for composite materials. Working with software engineers, STRUCTeam’s composite experts imparted their knowledge and created CompoSIDE.

CompoSIDE is an integrated suite of web-based design engineering modules and data management tools. It possesses a dedicated modern scantling software module called YACHTScant, specifically for Yacht Designers and Naval Architects working with composite materials. YACHTScant provides a centralised environment for scantling of sailing yachts and motor boats according to ISO and DNV-GL classification standards as well as workflows to cover Lloyd’s and Bureau Veritas guidelines.

CompoSIDE possesses a database of over 1,200 materials and their associated properties, including glass and carbon fibre plies, resins, cores, metals and more. This presentation will showcase studies of CompoSIDE being used effectively in various marine projects and demonstrate its innovative features and its benefits to the user.

At 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.
