MAESTRO is a structural calculation package based on Finite Element Analysis, aimed at evaluating and optimising ship structures. Thanks to its fundamental coarse-mesh approach, MAESTRO is a uniquely specialized tool for the study of reinforced shells (ship and submarine hulls & superstructures, offshore rigs, semi-submersibles, etc.).
The MAESTRO global model is built in a matter of hours thanks to the powerful graphical interactive modeller (intrinsically associative, database and object oriented). Comprehensive post-processing takes just minutes thanks to the focused stress and limit-state analyser. In addition to evaluating the coarse mesh model, MAESTRO is capable of fine-meshing selected areas and/or elements in the structure for more traditional stress concentration studies, thanks to its DSA module.
Several load types are supported (including inertial loading), and all hydrostatic pressures are accounted for automatically (including waves). The ship is statically balanced on waves of any description.
MAESTRO users include Classification Societies, Shipyards, Design Bureaus, Research Organizations, National Navies, Universities, etc.

Seminar begins Tue 23 April at 14:00.

Every day, feature reviews and hands-on applications will be alternated in the most productive way:
> review of software features to be covered
> hands-on training with examples, case studies (customer case studies are welcome)

Thursday afternoon and Friday will be dedicated to DSA:
> DSA theory & practice session

Seminar ends Friday 26 April at 17:00.

Active exclusively in the ship design and ship building industries for over 15 years, we have equipped over 400 companies in Europe alone with specialized software. We also provide expert training, technical support and engineering services to our customers. DS&T is not simply a software vendor, but rather a long term, supportive partner.
