Announcing MAXSURF and Multiframe CONNECT Edition Version 23 update 4

The MAXSURF development team is pleased to announce the release of MAXSURF and Multiframe CONNECT Edition 23.04.00.76.

Some highlights

In the 3D Perspective views, an option for automatically moving the view rotation centre to the middle of the screen has been added. This video highlights some enhancements we have made to the model rotation in the perspective window.

In Stability we have added the so-called Tow Tripping heeling arm used in IMO MSC.415(97) Intact Stability code 2008 Part B, Chapter 2, §2.8.2.2 and BV NR 476.E1 Part E, Chapter 1, Section 2, §2.3.4. Furthermore two new stability criteria have been added:

  1. Angle of equilibrium is less that angle at which specified freeboard occurs as used in IMO MSC.267(85) Intact Stability code 2008 Part B, Chapter 2, §2.2.4.2 and NSCV Part C, Section 6A (Intact Stability) Chapter 7, §7.3.5.4
  2. Angle of equilibrium is less that angle at which specified GZ occurs used in IMO MSC.415(97) Intact Stability code 2008 Part B, Chapter 2, §2.7.4.4 and BV NR 476.E1 Part E, Chapter 1, Section 3, §1.6.1.c

The Ratio of Angle of Equilibrium now includes a Key Point emergence option.

Know Issues

Unfortunately the following bug slipped in to this release: In MAXSURF Motions, some results files (.skr) may fail to load and cause Motions to hang. If you are able to successfully open the file and resave, then the problem will be fixed. Alternatively, to fix the problem, make a backup of your .skr file, then open the .skr file in a binary file editor and add about 10 NULL bytes to the end of the file. If you still encounter difficulties please send us the file and we should be able to fix it.
