In early May, IRClass, the Indian classification society,
announced the release of its new technical software,
IR-HULL was developed by IRClass specifically to verify all
aspects of ship design compliance to its established Rules and
Regulations for the Construction and Classification of Steel
The new IR-HULL software analyses global strength
(including both longitudinal and buckling strength) and local
scantling for all panels and stiffeners in a vessel’s hull section.
IR-HULL is equipped with a user-friendly graphical interface
and an intuitive modeller with CAD drawing tools to
significantly reduce data entry time.
“IR-HULL is agile, versatile, and can be simply applied to
multiple ship types,” said Mr. Arun Sharma, Chairman and
Managing Director of IRClass.
Mr. N Girish, Head – Research & Innovation Centre added,“We are delighted to have developed this new software solution which delivers a range of prescriptive assessment tools and provides results in standardized reports for quick and easy user comprehension, which ultimately facilitates safer ship design.”
IR-HULL software is available to ship owners, designers, consultants and shipyards.
