Shipbuilder selects FiberSIM to design composite hulls

  • 15-Jan-2010 03:15 EST

SNSP, a Russian maritime firm that produces minesweepers, has purchased FiberSIM composites engineering software from Vistagy Inc. to design and manufacture composite hulls, hull spars, and supports. SNSP has also purchased Vistagy professional services for training as well as on-site assistance in developing composites design methodologies. The company plans to use FiberSIM to design an 80-m (262-ft) hull, developing layup information and automating ply information to be sent to cutting and laser positioning machines. FiberSIM software was also recently purchased by Howaldtswerke-Deutsch Werft GmbH, a ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems company, to design and manufacture parts for submarines made of advanced composite materials.
