Modeling marine propulsion systems
When designing new technologies, shipbuilders, suppliers and their engineering partners face the persistent demand for more and more noise, weight and vibration reduction. At the same time, they are in fierce international competition and, therefore, have to operate economically, yet reliably. Around the globe, classification societies, shipbuilders, suppliers and engineering partners, such as Bureau Veritas, Caterpillar Marine Power Systems, Germanischer Lloyd and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, use SimulationX for designing and analyzing propulsion systems.
An open architecture and a vast range of transparent, customizable models and libraries provide SimulationX users with a great level of flexibility and usability. With a modeling concept optimized for analyses in the frequency domain, robust numerical calculations of simple and complex models are guaranteed. Structural analyses and evaluations of transient behavior, short circuits, ice collisions, structure vibrations, durability and comfort are also supported. Non-linear torsional vibrations can be analyzed in the time and frequency domains and evaluated with respect to limits and certifications. SimulationX offers comprehensive model packages for the simulation of propulsion systems: Rotational Mechanics, Powertrain Transmission and especially Torsional Vibration Analysis.
