MAESTRO

Design, Analysis, Evaluation, and Optimization Tool Specifically Tailored for Floating Structures

What is MAESTRO?

MAESTRO is a design, analysis, evaluation, and optimization tool specifically tailored for floating structures and has been fielded as a commercial product for over 30 years with a world-wide user base.

MAESTRO’s history and process is rooted in rationally-based structural design, which is defined as a design directly and entirely based on structural theory and computer-based methods of structural analysis (e.g., finite element analysis, structural limit state evaluation, and multi-objective structural optimization).

At MAESTRO’s core is a structural design tool developed to suit the needs of ship designers and naval architects. Further, the MAESTRO development staff and support team are themselves naval architects who understand the ship design and analysis process.

The MAESTRO system is organized within an open software architecture, with a set of core components, and integration with supporting software modules and interfaces. MAESTRO's key functional and integrated features have been developed specifically for the structural design, analysis, and optimization of ship and offshore structures.

Why MAESTRO?
