This paper presents assessment of ship structural analysis and design using MSC solutions. Linear and nonlinear finite element analyses are applied to 3D model describing in MSC.NASTRAN and MSC.MARC, respectively. The structural model analysis including geometric construction ability, size of meshing, boundary and loading conditions etc. are discussed. Comparisons of stress and strain between MSC and other solutions have been investigated. Reliable numerical results are adopted for direct strength analysis, ultimate strength as well as fatigue strength when applying the international association of classification society common structure rules (IACS CSR) and membership classifications. Actually, the finite element applications played an important in the large and ultra-ship structural analysis, the results obtained from numerical assessment help designer to predict the ultimate limit state, duration of ship building and operation.
