This project is part of a plan to address methods to rapidly generate large scale, full-ship analysis models for strength, stress, shock, and acoustic simulation and assessment in conjunction with a larger scale project. The project examined the content and adequacy of several Application Protocols to define and transfer ship structural geometry information necessary to create meshed, full-ship finite element analysis models of naval vessels. Among the project conclusions is that more persistent use of attributed surface geometry (e.g. AP218) has particular advantage for creating stiffened plate and shell FEA models at the full-ship extreme.
