Ship Virtual Simulator

Ship Virtual Prototype and Parametric Motion Simulator. An open-source application capable to run real-time ship motion simulations in a web browser, in any device of any operational system with HTML5 compatibility.

DATA DRIVEN DOCUMENTS IN SHIP DESIGN

Early phase design visualizations and interactions by using the D3.js library. The focus has largely been structural components, economic aspects, and especially hierarchical breakdowns

EPOCH-ERA ANALISYS

Lifecycle Model for LNG fueled Ships Operating in the Arctic via Epoch-Era Analysis

Ship Motion Web App

Graphical representation of closed-form functions for heave, roll and pitch accelerations.

Hull Lines Generator

This application is capable of generating a vessel main lines from its main dimensions. It is possible to adjust the hull characteristics by changing secondary parameters.

OUR LAB

The research activities within the Ship Design and Operations lab (ShipLab) focus on the design and behaviour of the ship in an offshore maritime operation environment. The ship is modelled in a virtual environment and the idea is to be able to simulate ship performance (motions, systems, propulsion) in real time. Design activities with fast-track tool, data driven design, 3D all over the process, PLM and modularisation are also considered. Activities have strong connection with the industry, via the Blue Maritime Cluster partners

PROJECTS

Ship Simulator
 

Ship Simulator

Ship Virtual Prototype and Parametric Motion Simulator. An open-source application capable to run real-time ship motion simulations in a web browser, in any device of any operational system with HTML5 compatibility. This becomes possible by implementing closed-form expressions for wave-induced motion in JavaScript code, assisted by THREE.js and WebGL libraries to handle 3D graphics.
Ship Motion Web App
 

Ship Motion Web App

Graphical representation of estimated motion responses for ships. Heave, pitch, vertical motion and vertical acceleration responses are calculated as function of length, breadth,draught, block coefficient, waterline breadth and operational profile. They can be changed by clicking and dragging the sliders.
Hull Lines Generator
 

Hull Lines Generator

This application is capable of generating a vessel main lines from its main dimensions. It is possible to adjust the hull characteristics by changing secondary parameters.

SFI classification system
 

SFI classification system

SFI is a widely used classification system for ships, oil platforms and other maritime structures. The SFI system allows its users to divide hierarchically the elements inside a maritime structure for a wide range of purposes related to control of shipping, offshore or shipbuilding operations.
Introduction to Parametric Design
 

Introduction to Parametric Design

The objective of the parametric design procedure is to establish a consistent parametric description of the vessel in the early stages of design, starting from the basic design principle that a certain description of a vessel should be able to perform efficiently a given mission.
