Mars NG

Mars NG Software: Hull strength calculations for container ships

Release Date

Version Number 2.1

Our MARS NG software assesses hull girder strength, and scantlings of plating and ordinary stiffeners for any cross-section of a container ship’s length. It follows Bureau Veritas Structural Rules for Container Ships (NR625), which include IACS UR-S11A.

For any given cross-section, MARS NG assesses the prescriptive requirements in the relevant Rules including:

  • Geometric properties (area, inertia, moduli, etc.)

  • Hull girder strength criteria

  • Hull girder ultimate strength

  • Scantling of strakes and longitudinal stiffeners according to yielding criteria, minimum thickness criteria and buckling criteria
