The Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) Hull Stress Monitoring System (HSMS) has received the ABS SMART Tier 2 approval in principle (AIP) for structural health monitoring (SHM).
Nor-Shipping 2023, the SMART (SHM) Tier 2 AIP is part of a larger joint development project (JDP) between SHI and ABS that aims to enhance hull safety with smart ship technology.ecognized with a certificate presentation at
The AIP verifies that the design is feasible for the intended application and, in principle, complies with the ABS SMART (SHM) Tier 2 requirements that include vessel-specific loads and operations monitoring, enhanced with periodic updates on structural conditions and physics-based analysis for a holistic structural health assessment and prediction.
Upon final approval, vessels on which SHI’s HSMS system is installed will be eligible to receive the ABS SMART (SHM) optional class notation with vessel records: Global Hull (Tier 2).
The HSMS software will be integrated into SHI’s proprietary SVESSEL Smart Platform, designed to expedite the transition from analog-based conventional ship systems into a digital-based lifecycle vessel management approach.
As a leader in supporting the adoption of smart technologies at sea, ABS is proud to work with forward-looking companies such as SHI to continue to develop practical applications for these technologies with a focus on safer operations
