Defense and Military Vessels

Viking Systems has been working on military and defense vessel structural design projects since 2001.  Defense project activities have continued to increase since the company began work on the US Navy LCS and JHSV projects, the US Coast Guard FRC-B project, and corrosion modeling of a range of US Navy surface warfare vessels.

Viking offers an exceptional technology blend, performing both advanced motions predictions (using spectral and non-linear time domain software) and advanced structural design and verification (using class society rules and advanced FEA finite element analysis).

The technologies developed through our proprietary SAGA structural computer program allows environmental loads that have been developed with advanced hydrodynamic analysis programs to be applied to full ship FEA models, such that the structure may be readily assessed for yielding, buckling and fatigue failure modes to allow rapid development of modifications to the design where needed.
