NAPA develops solutions that are especially useful for naval ship design and operation.

Naval vessel design has many unique characteristics compared to the commercial vessel design. However, concepts and calculations are based on the same principles. Here is a list of naval vessel specific functions supported by NAPA system:

  • Workflow-based application for the calculation of V-lines according to US NAVY SSD 079-1 rules.
  • Transverse sections of NAPA structural model can be exported to Lloyd's Register Naval Ship Classification software (NSR v2010).
  • Studies for progressive flooding can be carried out with NAPA Flooding Simulation. The result of the flooding simulation has been validated in a full scale test (see the video below).

In addition to design tools, NAPA provides naval specific tools for navy vessels in operation.Survivability assessment and signature analysis play a central role in the naval ship design process. NAPA product model can be utilized in these fields as well.
