Design for a mild steel barge for academic purposes
Hi, I am a masters student of Naval Architecture,
I was wondering if it was possible to have a design for a mild steel barge at least with its offsets and structural members, purely for academic purposes?
I am working with ANSYS multiphysics, and would like to perform static, modal and harmonic analysis (and fatigue if time permits) for a real world vessel but have hit a roadblock.
I cannot afford commercial off the shelf designs now, but i am willing to provide the analysis i would do by early April.
I have access to Maxsurf (and its Modules), Ansys Multiphysics, MATLAB at my university.
This is intended to be a strictly learning experience for me with assurance that no data received will be divulged, but my analysis can be used by the other party as they wish.
Interested prospective designers/firms can email me.
