Simulation

Uppsala University and Vasa Museum

ANSYS Hall of fame - Uppsala University and Vasa Museum

The Vasa ship, the best-preserved 17th century ship in the world, is deforming in its museum setting in Sweden. Researchers used ANSYS Mechanical to simulate the time-dependent deformation of the wooden structure and its center of mass distribution. This enabled them to improve the load distribution and slow the ship’s deformation by designing an improved support structure.
