Modifications are inevitable. Some of our projects have seen installation of foils, flaps, platforms and redesigned sections. More often than not, this requires approval by the authorities because the basis for the original approval has changed. Usually, the analysis requires a partial model of the surrounding structure.

 

Bow modification to support foils   Structural analysis of bow modification for foils

 

Support for bus ramp   Structural analysis of support for bus ramp

 

Access platform on 60ft catamaran   Stress analysis of access platform

 

The same applies to analysis of lift points in heavy structures. A partial model is often sufficient. On the other hand, major lifts of large objects or unusual docking situations may require a 'quick' global analysis.
