Six Ways to Break the Ship

Why are ship structures so labor intensive to design? Engineers need to anticipate multiple methods of failure, which makes a lot of work. The trick of efficient structural analysis focuses on recognizing which methods of failure are likely in each scenario. This article reveals six major methods of structural failure, with examples of common applications. Because it will be the failure mode you didn’t consider that ultimately leads to catastrophe.

GHS Tutorials: Structural Analysis

Did you know that GHS can also do structural analysis?  Often, we only require a simple longitudinal strength analysis.  GHS provides all the tools for this.
