Barge Structural Design

Design and Classification:  Viking Systems performs structural design and classification calculations of double-skin cargo barges for ocean and river routes.  The design work involves rule calculation according to classification society rules and delivery of complete structural drawings of the vessel to the shipyard.

We have extensive experience with the design of heated cargo barges such as asphalt barges and vessels carrying phenol.

We have also designed heating coils to maintain the temperature of the heated cargo, as well as fuel systems.

Longitudinal Strength and Thermal Analysis

Design Verification:  Viking Systems carries out design of heated cargo barges.  This type of design work involves thermal analysis of the heated cargo barge to verify the structure of the barge with respect to stresses resulting from thermal loading while subjected to stillwater and wave loading.
