This paper proposes a new geometric modeling technique, called hybrid representation (H-rep), for modeling ship hulls. The novelty of H-rep is in the integration of wireframe, surface and solid representation in one common data structure, and in providing topological support to surface modeling as well as an enhanced technique for curve fairing. The primary… (More)
Possibilities of software to predict the stability of container ships 2 Topics • Introduction to SARC. • Locopias on-board loading and stability software. • Automatic measurement of container weights, based on measured draft variations. • A proposal for probabilistic assessment of container ship stability.
Physical concept modeling and pre-manufacturing prototyping of ship hulls are becoming more and more important due to the strong need for better quality ships, for optimization of the global performance, and for involving the customers in the development process. Physical models are typically scale models, which are used during and after design for various… (More)
