Common Structural Rules software upgraded

Common Structural Rules Software LLC, a joint venture company formed by ABS and Lloyd’s Register (LR), has released an upgraded version of its software packages that aim to simplify compliance with current and pending IACS Common Structural Rules (CSR).

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}“As requirements change, it is imperative for classification societies to provide services and solutions that keep pace,” said ABS chairman, president and CEO Christopher Wiernicki.

“By updating this software, we ensure our tools are effective and provide the most help to end users.”

Version 2.5 of the CSR Prescriptive Analysis and CSR Finite Element (FE) Analysis software allows assessment of whole vessel structures – including new bulk carrier and oil tanker designs – using compliance information for the current CSR, which entered into force on 1 July 2015, as well as for the rule changes that come into force on 1 July 2017. Both ABS and LR will use these tools to evaluate new designs against the CSR.

The new software requires only that the user inputs the appropriate data, a summary report is produced including required and offered scantlings with graphic representation of any deficiencies. An intermediate report summarises dominant criteria for each structure and a detailed report provides data for every parameter value.

The software, which was licensed to nearly 500 users prior to the production release, is now being employed by nearly 1,000 users. Regular updates for additional structural coverage and functionality will address ongoing CSR changes, the company says.

The updated CSR Prescriptive Analysis and CSR FE Analysis is available for download from the Common Structural Rules Software LLC website.{/mprestriction}
