New Engineering Software

Wednesday, June 24, 2009

KNUD E. HANSEN A/S is pleased to announce the recent addition of two new software tools to our portfolio, helping us maintain our presence at the forefront of ship design and marine technology.

We have recently purchased Star-CCM+ software from STAR-CD-adapco, a CFD (computational fluid dynamics) code which will be used internally at KNUD E. HANSEN A/S for optimizing and evaluating existing and future ship designs in order to make the most applicable and efficient design possible for our customers, as environmental regulations continue to play a major role in the design process.

We have also recently purchased FEA PATRAN-NASTRAN, an FEA (finite element analysis) modeling tool developed by MSC, used for advanced structural design. This software will allow us to optimize structural design, and lightweight, giving more flexibility in terms of space management and materials, while optimizing deadweight capacity.
