Naval Architecture

The skilled team at bES are able to service requirements across the naval architecture spectrum, from straight forward and regular works such as stability and longitudinal strength calculations through to seakeeping analysis and inclining test supervisions. An area where the bES team has a particular strength is the advanced analysis on the stability or seakeeping of any floating objects. Our capabilities in this area also extend to include detailed support in following international requirements such as; IMO or SOLAS as well as the appropriate Classification society or local authority regulations. In addition, bES are experienced in providing cargo loading simulations, including considering the particular interaction of objects (Multi-Body analysis).
