Aveva Element Analysis for Shipbuilders

Aveva (LSE:AVV) announced the release of Aveva Hull Finite Element Modeller, a new addition to the Aveva Marine portfolio which accelerates and simplifies the stress analysis of ship structures. Ship designers use of Finite Element Analysis (FEA) to ensure that hull structures comply with strength criteria and achieve low levels of vibration for maximum passenger comfort. FEA is a computational technique for stress and vibration analysis which entails the idealisation of a physical structure as a mesh of a very large number of small elements. (www.aveva.com/marine)
