That's right, SCT does not automatically incorporate images into your project. And that, why?. Because the normal procedure is that the user, before starting the calculations, prepare a scantlings drawing, that must be incorporated in the general project of the boat. This drawing is created with any drawing program available to the user. It should include several things:
- main dimensions of the boat.
- areas where the hull is divided for scantlings reasons.
- main frame, transversal bow section and aft section, with their longitudinal reinforcements.
- at least, one generic watertight bulkhead.
- longitudinal profile with position of the frames and frame spacing.
- main deck with its reinforced.
- any other detail that defines the structure.
- each specific detail of this drawing must incorporate the measurements that will serve as input data in SCT calculations.
Once the calculations have been made, they must be incorporated into the scantlings drawing. The outputs of SCT are nothing more than the justification of what has been indicated in the drawing.
That drawing must be, along with the calculations of SCT, in the project of the ship, as is demanded by the regulatory organisms (see any CS Regulations). Any other picture could be very decorative but, technically, is not necessary.
