ClassNK’s CSR software has been updated

Classification society ClassNK has announced the release of the latest versions of IACS Common Structural Rules (CSR) structural assessment software.

Two major software packages have been updated, namely PrimeShip-HULL(Rules)/CSR and PrimeShip-HULL(DSA)/CSR.

PrimeShip-HULL(Rules)/CSR is software designed to perform structural evaluations using the scantling formulae defined in the CSR. This software possesses a number of powerful functions such as user friendly interfaces and result displays. This software can be used for both bulk carriers and tankers.

PrimeShip-HULL(DSA)/CSR is software designed to perform the direct calculations defined in the CSR. Using FE models, users can easily execute complicated FEM analyses through the use of special features like the automatic identification of structural members and compartments. In addition, a function to help user navigate the operation process is also provided.

ClassNK says that the two packages have been updated to reflect user feedback. The updates include new functions and enhance the existing features, to improve usability and help make design work more efficient. The new software is provided without extra charge to customers planning to perform CSR structural assessments, and is available from ClassNK’s Hull Department and Natural Resources and Energy Department.
