Vessel Hull Design, Naval Architecture Software

Visualize and optimize vessel designs with the complete set of integrated naval architecture tools in MAXSURF. Create fair hull shapes, comply with stability requirements, minimize power requirements, and ensure crew and passenger comfort in varying sea states. Minimize structural weight while ensuring scantling compliance through initial modeling and stress analysis of beam and plate structures.

MAXSURF helps you redefine design excellence for any size vessel. Choose the version that fits your project needs:
  • MAXSURF – Develop optimal designs for smaller craft using up to 20 NURBS (non-uniform rational basis spline) surfaces.
  • MAXSURF Advanced – Optimize the design of larger and more complex vessels using an unlimited number of dynamically trimmed 3D NURBS sur faces for modeling the hull, appendages, and superstructure. Enable your naval architecture team with a full range of functions for designing power, sail, commercial, or naval vessels made from steel, aluminum, or composite materials.
  • MAXSURF Ultimate– Comply with the most demanding requirements by extending MAXSURF Advanced with probabilistic damage stability, ad vanced motions prediction, and dynamic structural analysis.


Integrated offshore simulation software

Minimize offshore project risks with designs optimized using MOSES integrated simulation software. Apply industry best practices for installation and design sequences, and explore design alternatives with the efficiency and flexibility of a unified modeling environment. Simulate complete system response with advanced, integrated solvers for hydrostatic, hydrodynamic, mooring, and structural behavior. Avoid rework and project delays by collaborating with structural teams using integration with SACS.

MOSES helps you solve complex offshore engineering problems and produce accurate high-quality models and platform designs for future reuse. Choose the version that aligns with your project needs:
  • MOSES – Satisfy general transportation requirements with capabilities for stability assessment and motions analysis in the frequency domain
  • MOSES Advanced – Mitigate risks for marine operations by extending MOSES with capabilities for lifting, floatover, and global performance analyses. Apply either strip theory or radiation-diffraction panel method for calculation of response in the frequency domain, as well as time domain predictions of non-linear vessel motions
  • MOSES Ultimate– Save time by evaluating installation and global performance requirements in a unified offshore-specific system. Expand MOSES Advanced with a complete range of functions from hull modeling and stability calculation, to prediction of motions, mooring and riser analysis, pipelay, and jacket launch
