Creative Systems, Inc.
Creative Systems is the originator of GHS, the wellknown PC-based simulator of vessels in fl uids and fl uids in vessels. GHS is a software system for the design and evaluation of all types of ships and fl oating structures. It addresses fl otation, trim, stability and strength by calculating the forces involved using mathematical/geometrical models of the vessels. Developed by Creative Systems, Inc. specifi cally for today’s computers, GHS has become widely recognized as the most productive tool of its kind. It is continually being extended and improved to ensure its continued leadership and excellence in response to increasing sophistication of stability standards and computing technology. GHS is well-proven, reliable, respected by regulatory agencies and in constant use by major design fi rms and shipyards. GHS is truly general-purpose. Not only does it handle ship hulls, but also anything that fl oats or contains liquid - or both. It has been used to analyze and/or design submarines, SWATHs, dry docks, drilling platforms, 10-foot sailboats, 300-meter freighters, fl oating bridges, and even a fl oating golf green. GHS addresses simple and complex stability issues including intermediate stages of fl ooding, spilling of cargo, and optimizing against complex stability criteria.
