Any yacht/ship hulls with bulkheads? [Solidworks + ANSYS]

By Nic Yau on 26 Mar 18:01 0 answers 142 views 0 comments

I'm looking for a model of a yacht (length: 10 - 30m) with modeled bulkheads, to use in ANSYS Workbench. The goal is to use a modal analysis of the hull (set up with a single pin joint in one corner to approximate a free-free beam) to find high stress points in the bulkheads. I only have access to Solidworks for CAD, so files in SW-friendly formats are most appreciated. Anyone know of any such suitable models?

Alternatively, any references to resources on simulating vibrations within hollow structures are also welcome. Many thanks!
