Did you know that GHS can also do structural analysis? Nothing as elaborate as global FEA. But we don’t always need an elaborate FEA. Often, we only require a simple longitudinal strength analysis. GHS provides all the tools for this. Start with these FREE tutorials and learn the advanced structural capabilities of GHS.

How to add waves in GHS and perform a quasi-static analysis. The primary use for adding waves is to assess longitudinal strength. The wave definitions then get combined with the longitudinal strength command to check vessel strength in waves.
