CAFE – Tool for rapid Ship Design

SimFWD is a value-added CAE reseller of the following tools in Greece and the Balkans:

• CAESES
• CAFE
midasNFX
• FINE™/Marine
• MAAT Hydro

CAFE is a very powerful ship-modeling tool that offers innovative features that not only ensures faster and easier user interaction but also results in a large time saving for modeling. The CAFE framework supports a wide variety of imports from widely used CAD and CAE software. Following the quick definition of the hull shape, main structural components like transverse and longitudinal bulkheads, double bottom, double hull and decks can be modelled using the innovative functions that CAFE has to offer. Lastly, the user can define Openings and stiffeners with great ease. These structural entities can also be parametric in nature.

shipdesign

CAFE is widely used for the initial stage of the Ship Design process, but apart from this it also offers other functionalities like weight and surface calculations, strength calculation, lighting distribution, cost calculation (including piping and electric installation), etc. Models generated in CAFE can be meshed and the mesh can then be exported in a suitable format to the Finite Element code of the user’s choice. A simple Finite Element Analysis can also be performed within CAFE using the in-built open source OOFEM software adapted for shipbuilding.

We at SimFWD have developed an effective Workflow wherein model creation, definition of basic entities and initial meshing is carried out in CAFE. Mesh refinement, loading and boundary conditions and the final analysis are carried out in midasNFX.

Assessment of Panama Fittings using midas NFX

A document issued by the Panama Canal Authority states a detailed list of requirements for ships for compliance with Panama Canal rules and regulations during Panama Canal transit. This document contains an entire section dedicated to the construction, number and location of mooring fittings on board the vessel. Each of these fittings has a Safe Working Load (SWL) Limit which has been specified by the manufacturer. The structural integrity of each fitting and the deck on which it is mounted is then investigated by applying loads as per international Standards.

Computational Fluid Dynamics
SimFWD has completed several projects wherein 2D drawings of Mooring fittings onboard a ship were used to generate a 3D model. The 3D Model was prepared and meshed in midas NFX and the relevant loading cases were then investigated using Finite Element Analysis. Shown in the figure below is one such study performed for a closed chock and bitt.

Mooring fittings are critical items in terms of safety and operation of a ship and have gained importance in the process of Ship Design due to the new regulations. SimFWD performs a Comprehensive Assessment of Structures and Fittings followed up by enhancement proposals and rules check.
