PRS Leads the Way in Probabilistic Damage Stability Analysis

PRS Technical Services Inc. leads the way in assisting Filipino shipowners and operators in complying with MARINA MC 08-2015 entitled “Rules and Regulations on Subdivision and Damage Stability Requirements for Philippine-Registered Domestic Ships”.

This MC outlines the requirements under Resolution MSC.216(82), adopting the regulations on subdivision and damage stability in SOLAS Chapter 11-1 which are based on the probabilistic concept and using the probability of survival as measure of ships’ safety in a damaged condition. Implementation of said Circular requires powerful analytic tools like MAXSURF software.

Maxsurf Software provides PRS Tech’s naval architects with powerful analytical tools, including probabilistic damage stability, advanced motions prediction and dynamic structural analysis with graphical tools that can be easy to use for defining and managing hundreds of damage conditions.

Companies who have trusted PRS Tech so far in complying with this MARINA policy includes the largest and most prestigious shipping companies in the Philippines like 2Go Group Inc./Caprotec Corporation, Magsaysay Ship Management, Oceanic Container Lines, Trans-Asia Shipping Lines, Keywest (West Ocean) Shipping Line Corporation, etc.

For passenger vessels and larger ships, the probabilistic damage stability in the Maxsurf’s Stability Enterprise module provides easy-to-use graphical tools for defining and managing hundreds of damage conditions. To facilitate compliance with the IMO (International Maritime Organization) stability criteria, MAXSURF Enterprise includes a built-in criteria library and graphical tools for defining and viewing damage zones. Maxsurf includes a comprehensive library of stability criteria, as well as the ability for users to define their own criteria. To assist with creating stability booklets, a unique templating system allows you to define the report format using a Microsoft Word template document. Tables, graphs, and images are then automatically sent to the report.
