 COMPASS-STRUCTURE-CSR-DSA: Direct structural analysis (DSA) is developed in accordance with IACS Common Structural Rules for bulk carriers and oil tankers and on the basis of MSC.Patran. Due to complicated nature of CSR, traditional manual calculation approach spends great amount of time on load determination, corrosion deduction and result processing. Moreover, direct calculation is greatly increased in CSR due to the addition of more conditions and the introduction of fine mesh and very fine mesh analysis. DSA uses Patran’s PCL language and presents flexible assessment approaches, and hence greatly reduces calculation period in finite element modeling and increases analysis efficiency, to enable engineers to complete FE analysis quickly and accurately.
