Bureau Veritas Standards

Bureau Veritas

SDC Verifier enables automatic BV NR615 standard verification in a standalone SDC Verifier program and directly in Ansys Mechanical, Femap, and Simcenter 3D.

Our software is meticulously aligned with the BV NR615 Buckling Assessment of Plated Structures, ensuring your designs meet the criteria set out in the July 2023 edition of the standard.

Robust Rule Note for Structural Integrity

SDC Verifier incorporates the strength criteria from the BV NR615 Rule Note, covering buckling and ultimate strength assessments for local and primary supporting members, as well as other structural elements like pillars, corrugated bulkheads, and brackets.

Advanced Plate Capacity Calculations

At the core of SDC Verifier lies the advanced plate capacity calculation engine, primarily based on Section 5 [Buckling Capacity] and [2.2 Plate Capacity] of BV NR615. Our software conducts comprehensive checks across all sections to ensure the integrity of unstiffened plates.
