ASC is a marine software developer of load planning, loading instrument and integrated CAD/CAM programs. Visit booth 247 and view live demonstrations of market leading programs: Autoship®, Autohydro®, and Autoload®.

Autoship is equally user-friendly in designing workboats, tankers, or the largest semi-submersible vessels because it has features to help minimize the cost to design and manufacture. Developable surfaces, for instance, offer an easier way to construct a metal hull because the shape is, partially, determined by how the sheet material wants to behave. In Autoship you lay out two curves, such as a chine and deck edge, and the program takes care of the rest, including exporting the flattened shape that the plate will be cut to. And, Autoship has built-in hydrostatic calculations that help you evaluate the design as it evolves. Also, the Autoship project can be transferred to Autohydro for a more complete hydrostatic evaluation.

Autohydro is recognized throughout the marine world as the leading Windows™-based hydrostatic and stability program. With the current release, it continues to add important functionality and ease-of-use features to allow you to easily evaluate stability criteria. Use existing examples to develop your own scripts to check more complex criteria or new regulations. Your scripts and model can easily be transferred to Autoload for day to day use onboard.

Autoload is a robust, intuitive, user-friendly program that offers a simple to understand display of key hydrostatic values that are critical for safe vessel operation. Autoload frees the user to focus on critical decisions while it takes care of the calculations. The base system uses a 3D model and has easy to use controls for weights, tank loads and external forces such as wind. Additional modules can be added for more complex control of weights. The Bay Plan module handles containers, the Deck Plan deals with Ro-Ro cargo and the Crane module simulates the effect of lifting dry and/or immersed cargo with single or double cranes. For every module, the stability and strength parameters are updated as cargo is moved, providing up-to-the-minute guidance on safety and compliance. Autoload can also be connected directly to the fleet’s booking system to import cargo booking and vessel scheduling data. 3D Cargo stowage plans are easily developed in deck plan views. Autoload also connects to the on-board tank sensor system.

For over 35 years, ASC has been producing first class software design solutions for naval architects and marine engineers around the world. For a free pass to Workboat and more information, email
