Korean Register (KR) has launched “SeaTrust-Frame3D”, a grid structure evaluation software for ships. SeaTrust-Frame3D makes it easy to model a complicated ship structure by representing it as a wire mesh structure.

The software allows the designer to perform and analyze rules-based structural strength and buckling strength assessments, the results of which are displayed as 3D images, tables and graphs. It can automatically generate reports based on analysis results and offer support for CAD interfaces.

SeaTrust-Frame3D can assess a vessel’s structural strength much faster than existing Finite Element Method (FEM) structural analysis, which will be welcomed by those looking to examine structural strength urgently. of a ship.
KR expects the software to be widely used in shipyards as it is applicable to various strength assessments of structural elements throughout the vessel construction process.

KIM Dae-heon, Executive Vice President of KR’s R&D Division, said, “With the launch of SeaTrust-Frame3D, we are able to provide customer-oriented technical services directly to those working in the field.

“Looking forward, KR will continually update the program to meet customer needs and improve its usability and we are working to make it a much better solution to apply classification rules even more effectively than is possible today. today.”
