Technical Model Design & Contruction
As more advanced technology is introduced into the maritime industry, there develops a need to be able to explain these complex issues to those making the decisions in business and in the legal profession.
With a marine artist and several craftsmen on the staff, Martin & Ottaway can produce small-scale models of vessels or sections of vessels for litigation or arbitration purposes. The firm is able to produce both the static model type and dynamic ones that can move and demonstrate a function or process.
In addition to physical models, fully rendered, dynamic 3D computer generated models are possible with the software employed by the firm.
The firm also performs many types of structural analyses using advanced finite element programs. These programs allow for the calculation and presentation of linear static and dynamic induced stresses in a variety of formats.
