accurate approximation of structural analysis on a sailboat hull

By Robert Beres on 14 Mar 01:46 2 answers 326 views 0 comments

I am trying to do an approximation for structural analysis on a sailboat hull, ultimately to see what the addition of bulkheads will do for me. This has been a very tricky task for me so far.

some pressures and foces to consider:

-pressure force on one side of the keel
-pressure force on wet side of the hull
-force weight from the bulb
-force weight of the hull
-force from the sails
-pressure force on rudder

I hollowed out the hull but now I am unsure how to procede. You cannot simulate assemblies in my version of Solid Works (student) and I have the mast, keel, hull, bulb, and rudder all in separate parts. Any advice?
