Longitudinal Strength Limit Calculator (TheNavalArch)

TheNavalArch launches the Longitudinal Strength Limit Calculator
This Excel sheet helps you evaluate the key parameters for Longitudinal Strength Computation at a specific section along the length of a Ship

  • Maximum Wave Bending Moment
  • Maximum Wave Shear Force
  • Minimum Required Section Modulus
  • Minimum Required Moment of Inertia

The required values can then be compared against the actual calculated ones to assess the suitability of the vessel

This sheet is applicable only for vessels without continuous longitudinal bhds
