CSR Prescriptive Analysis

CSR Prescriptive Analysis software assesses ship structures for compliance based on the IACS January 2015 and January 2017 versions of the Common Structural Rules for Bulk Carriers and Oil Tankers. The January 2015 Rules came into force on 1st July 2015, and the January 2017 Rules are effective from 1st July 2017.

This software supersedes the CSR Stage 1 product for ships designed to comply with these new Rules.


CSR FE Analysis

CSR FE Analysis software uses finite element analysis to perform direct strength and fatigue assessment of ship structures for compliance based on the IACS January 2015 and January 2017 versions of the Common Structural Rules for Bulk Carriers and Oil Tankers. The January 2015 Rules came into force on 1st July 2015, and the January 2017 Rules are effective from 1st July 2017.

This software supersedes the CSR BulkCheck and TankCheck Stage 2 software for ships designed to comply with these new Rules.


CSR Stage 1

CSR Stage 1 is a software tool that enables ship designers to quickly assess designs against the following Rules:

  • IACS Common Structural Rules for Double Hull Oil Tankers (July 2010), RCN1 July 2012

  • IACS Common Structural Rules for Bulk Carriers (July 2010), RCN1 July 2012

CSR Stage 1 helps improve the efficiency of the design process, integrating ship design assessment with classification knowledge and experience, leading to significant savings in time and cost at the initial design stage.


CSR Spreadsheets

The CSR Spreadsheets cover functionality that is not currently supported in CSR Stage 1.


CSR TankCheck Stage 2 & CSR BulkCheck Stage 2

CSR TankCheck Stage 2 is an integrated software package covering the strength assessment of double hull tankers using finite element analysis. The procedures in TankCheck Stage 2 comply with:

  • IACS Common Structural Rules for Double Hull Oil Tankers (July 2010), RCN1 July 2012

CSR BulkCheck Stage 2 is an integrated software package covering the direct structural analysis (FEA) related Rules in:

  • IACS Common Structural Rules for Bulk Carriers (July 2010), RCN1 July 2012

CSR TankCheck Stage 2 and CSR BulkCheck Stage 2 streamline the direct structural analysis (FEA) procedures, integrating ship design assessment with classification knowledge and experience, leading to significant savings in time and cost whilst promoting technical consistency in the design stage.
