In the ship building industry, the generation of a structural analysis model, that is, a finite element model of a hull structure, has been manually performed by a designer and thus has required lots of time as compared with that of a mechanical part, because of many constraints, the complexity, and the huge size of the hull structure. To make this task automatic, a generation method of the structural analysis model is proposed through the reconstruction of the topological information of a hull structural model in this study. The applicability of the proposed method is demonstrated by applying it to the generation of the structural analysis model of a deadweight 300,000ton VLCC(Very Large Crude oil Carrier).
