Comprehensive analysis

ShipmoPC can be used for monohull ships of all sizes in regular or irregular seas. Analysis capabilities include:

  • Prediction of ship motions in regular and irregular seaways with six degrees of freedom
  • Algorithms to predict deck wetness, slamming occurrence and slamming pressures
  • Extensive wave spectra selection
  • Human tolerance factors - reduced crew performance because of motion (MII), tipping and sliding
  • Predictions of movement and speed factors at specific locations
  • Load assessment of still water and wave affected hull girder moment shear torsional

Extensive reporting capabilities

ShipmoPC provides a comprehensive reporting capability with the graphical and tabular presentation of results. It can generate polar plots of any motion response parameters with speed. The program also produces formatted text output and X-Y results.

The software is compatible with various other Windows™ applications for post-processing analysis. A comprehensive user manual and online help are included.

Technical support and consulting

We provide technical support for ShipmoPC and offer extensive marine consulting services for seakeeping performance.  We offer analysis of the fluid forces, full-scale sea trials and model test coordination.

User-friendly and customised for your specific requirements

ShipmoPC offers a user-friendly interface with enhanced plotting capability and reports quality output.  Users can specify vessel features and environmental factors to predict monohull ship motions.  The software allows us to input your specific data on waves, mass/weight distribution, stabilising systems, ship features, sea directions, seakeeping information and more.  We can also customise the program in consultation with end-users to provide extra functionality.

ShipmoPC software is based on extensive research and validation against numerous vessel types, including:

We regularly add sea trials data to test ShipmoPC predictions and add new capabilities.
