Vectis consolidates advanced composite design capability

Vectis has recently completed the structural design of two new high performance and weight critical advanced composite craft thereby consolidating our in-house structural design capability in both composites and metals. These craft follow the structural design of a novel 22m high speed craft and a next-generation 8m RIB both in advanced composite materials with infused and cored structural elements. This advanced composite design capability is available to other naval architects, boat designers and boat builders.

Structural Design

We have a strong in-house structural design and analysis capability for small craft structures in GRP, Advanced Composites and Aluminium Alloy, including Finite Element Analysis. 

This includes the design of the global structure and also local structures for lifting and tie-down points and equipment and weapon foundations. Global structure is typically to Classification Society or ISO requirements, and local structures to SOLAS, STANAG or other standards.

Our capability includes;

  • Global Structural Design
  • Local Structural design
  • Structural Analysis and Optimisation
  • Aluminium Alloy Build Kits
  • Finite Element Analysis
