MIT WholeShip_v1 automatically and rapidly constructs a surface warship in Paramarine using information from S3D, and produces information required in S3D for surface ship design. This code accomplishes the following:
• Sets up a standard format for storing the ship design, using U.S. Navy-specific terminology.
• Using a small set of parameters to define the size of the ship, constructs a ship hull using the “quickhull” capability within Paramarine.
• Inserts bulkheads and subdivides the hull into watertight compartments.
• Inserts decks.
• Constructs a deckhouse.
• Inserts weight data categorized by ESWBS.
• Establishes an audit system.
• Analyzes intact and damaged stability.
This code is designed to be used in conjunction with GRC Paramarine; see .
