Presentation held at the second public workshop of the FIBRESHIP project, held at La Ciotat, France, on 25th of June 2019.
The second public workshop of the FIBRESHIP project offered to the participants a chance to discuss the different composite materials solutions for shipbuilding as well as learn more about the latest technological advances of FIBRESHIP Project related to design, construction and operation of ships integrally built in composite materials. FIBRESHIP Consortium is looking for a niche in the future shipping market through promoting changes in the regulatory framework of IMO and generating guidelines and methodologies for designing, building and operating large-length vessels, laying the foundations of a new market based on composites technology in shipbuilding and shipping.
This presentation explains the development of a new software suite with a wide variety of ad-hoctools to simulate the structural and fire performance of the lightweight composite ships developed within the FIBRESHIP project. The computational analysis tool is based on a fast-numerical software which can be used for the simulation of fatigue, fire diagnosis, thermal propagation, hydro-structural analysis and so on. A Betha version of the developed software suite of this numerical tool is available for the partners of the project.
