Abstract
The report describes the process for modelling and refining structural detail of a ship, for which a MAESTRO model has been created, in preparation for a bottom-up or top-down detail stress analysis. The detail can be modelled by either locally refining the MAESTRO model, using the program MAESTRO/DSA, or by creating the model separately with a mesh generator such as HYPERMESH. The processing of the results to display them in graphic form suitable for the documentation program LATEX is also illustrated.
