Vessel Structural Analysis

Whether a vessel is large or small, it still must be strong enough to handle the rigors of its intended service throughout its lifetime.  At Pelican Marine Design, we support this by designing robust structure through analysis and first principles calculations that result in a design that meets the applicable regulatory criteria whether it is from American Bureau of Shipping, Det Norske Veritas, US Navy or others. Below are a few examples of our structural analysis capabilities:


  • Hull Scantling Calculations
  • Structural Arrangement and Drawing Development
  • Midship Section Development
  • Hull Girder Section Modulus Calculation
  • Longitudinal Strength
  • Finite Element Analysis (FEA)
  • Foundation Design
  • Vibration and Natural Frequency Calculations
