Updated Software for New Tanker Rules


Lloyd’s Register has released new versions of its RulesCalc and ShipRight SDA software to coincide with the official publication of the International Association of Classification Societies’ (IACS) Common Structural Rules for Double-hull Oil Tankers. RulesCalc is a software tool that enables ship designers to quickly assess and optimise their designs against the new tanker Rules. ShipRight SDA is a finite-element modelling and analysis tool which allows customisable assessment and reporting of compliance against procedural structural requirements. Both software packages support the new CSR for tankers issued by IACS.

The Lloyd’s Register software development team has had the advantage of working alongside the Rule development team at every stage of the development of the new Rules, helping to ensure that the new software provides the most reliable results. The updated, CSR-compliant software is available for download from Lloyd’s Register’s web-based classification information service, ClassDirect Live (www.cdlive.lr.org). RulesCalc and ShipRight SDA also benefit from Lloyd’s Register’s software interface tool, which enables designers to rapidly and seamlessly import designs and models created in industry standard software packages such as NAPA and Tribon into Lloyd’s Register’s software.

“The common Rules for tankers represent a step forward for classification and for the tanker sector as a whole,” says Alan Gavin, Marine Director, Lloyd’s Register. “With each subsequent draft of the new Rules, we have worked to ensure that our software tools have been updated accordingly to help owners and yards to gain a working familiarity with the new Rules. With the official publication of the Rules, we have prepared our design support tools to give designers the efficiency and ease of use that they require.”
