Computer Aided Drafting (CAD)
Hawaii Marine provides a full range of CAD services. This firm's
computer generated drawings are made quicker and more accurately than
hand drawings. The company's plotter can generate up to E size
drawings while automatically switching between eight different
pens. Each pen may be different size and color.
The sample drawings included with this web site are described as follows:
Group #1 CAD Samples include a Vessel Profile Drawing, a drawing of Machinery Foundation Details, and standard details regarding Raised Manhole Openings.
Group #2 CAD Samples include a Engine Control System Schematic, a simple Lines Drawing and a Piece Details Drawing (that includes Shell Expansions).
Aided Engineering (CAE)
Many CAE methods are utilized by Hawaii Marine Company.
Specifically the firm employs hull design, stability, mathematical
scratchpad, word processor, spreadsheet, database, and other programs to
provide its services.
The firm's hull design services are a good example of CAE. For instance the hull software can easily generate a vessel's Lines Drawing. Furthermore this software can mathematically fair these hull lines. Developable surface characteristics can be incorporated into hull shapes. The hull software is also able to do simple shell plate expansions and powering calculations. Attached are 3D wire-frames samples generated by this hull design software.
Hawaii Marine also employs several types of programs to do stability and structural analysis. For instance spreadsheets are often utilized to quickly determine a Vessel's Operating Condition. For a specific operating condition the programs can almost instantly generate a vessel's upright hydrostatics properties. Additionally they calculate a vessel's trim and stability as well as Cross Curve characteristics. Another program evaluates if a vessel's Curve of Statical Stability to see if it meets regulatory or classification society requirements.
