Vessel Design & Development Software Tool

Paramarine® is a fully integrated Naval Architecture tool, where all design and analysis work takes place within one common graphical user interface, eliminating the need for data exports to other packages.

Paramarine® integrates multiple analytical tools within one software package, including:

  • Concept design
  • Stability assessment, both damaged and intact
  • Manoeuvring performance
  • Powering and endurance
  • Seakeeping
  • Structural analysis

Customizable reports including general arrangements, stability books and probabilistic damage are easily generated using Paramarine’s advanced reporting functionality.

Parametric design approach

Paramarine’s object orientated design approach allows designs to be generated and controlled with ease through input characteristics. These can be used to parametrically define the hull, which can be assessed for stability, structure and manoeuvring performance. The resulting values are always up to date, eliminating the need for the user to manually recalculate any part of the design.

Siemens Parasolid™ technology

Based on Siemens’ Parasolid software, Paramarine® integrates seamlessly with NX and provides comprehensive interfacing through ST L, STE P, DXF and IGES file types.

Paramarine® uses the principles of facet geometry rather than curve groups to perform calculations, providing the user with results of greater accuracy. The 3D geometry allows the user to easily visualize their design and compartment definition. Using powerful and flexible surface generation functionality allows rapid generation of complex hull forms and subsequent compartment subdivision. This approach prevents double accounting of volume and the hierarchical nature of the subdivision ensures the consistency and integrity of the design.

Embedded Excel and Team Paramarine®

Through Paramarine’s embedded Microsoft Excel functionality, users can easily control and define the flow of data to and from a design, as well as use the inherent VBA macro language to undertake optimization routines.

Multiple users can co-work on a single design through the Team Paramarine® functionality. This provides user access control, design auditing and the ability to check in and check out areas of the design.
