The conditions of loading in the Maritime Transport are becoming increasingly fundamental and demanding, as the ships increase their size and the efforts begin to travel through the limits of the properties of the materials.

These conditions became critical and require a very demanding control, as loading and unloading operations can collaborate in the collapse of the resistant structure, either by a bending or excessive cutting effort.

In same way of improving the assessment of the stability conditions of the vessel, this work aims to show the new computational development that Arquitectura Naval Asociados is integrating to its platform, which will allow an integral approach by Operators, Ship Owners, Maritime Authorities and Training Institutions as well.
