Viking Systems is engaged in the design of structures to withstand blast pressures from the risk of explosions onboard vessels.  The pressure profiles are applied to the structure models of various components of a vessel design that are required to withstand potential blast pressures.  This work is done using a combination of several advanced procedure and software:

  • Performed using non-linear time domain structural software (LS-DYNA)

  • Integrated with SAGA to assess the highest stress from each time step

  • Integrated with SAGA to assess the strength of the structure

  • Used to design adequate blast barriers and blast walls
