Important Information regarding US Export Control Regulations

MAESTRO is subject to the United States Export Regulations, as administered by the Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry Security. The software may not be used in or exported/re-exported to Cuba, Libya, North Korea, Sudan, Syria, or any country to which the United States embargoes goods. The same restriction applies to persons, no matter where they are located, that appear on the Table of Denial Orders, the Entity List, or the List of Specially Designated Nationals.

By clicking on the button below, you hereby certify that you are not a national of Cuba, Libya, North Korea, Sudan, Syria, or any country to which the United States embargoes goods, nor do you appear on the Table of Denial Orders, the Entity List, or the List of Specially Designated Nationals.


MAESTRO is a computer program for rationally-based design of large, complex thin-walled structures. In essence, MAESTRO is a synthesis of finite element analysis, failure (or limit state) analysis, and mathematical optimization, all of which is integrated under a user-friendly graphical interface.

By virtue of its 25-year history and worldwide user base, MAESTRO has been applied to a wide range of aluminum, composite, and steel structures: naval vessels from patrol boats to a 41,000 tonne carrier (USS Wasp), coast guard cutters, double hull tankers, high speed ferries, SWATH and catamaran ships, bulk carriers of all types (including molten sulfur), and many other (non-ship) types of structures. MAESTRO’s failure analysis results have been accurately correlated to in-service structural damage incurred by several ships, and used for the design of corrective modifications.

Expert Assitance

MAESTRO training and technical support is available worldwide. MAESTRO workshops have been provided to structural designers in numerous cities of Europe, North America, Asia, and Australia. Expert user assistance is available from MAESTRO experienced structural engineers. MAESTRO is in use in 23 countries by over 90 organizations.

MAESTRO also has a strong worldwide presence in Academia and holds workshops for educators who are using (or wish to use) MAESTRO in their curriculum, to share ideas and approaches to improve their courses with MAESTRO.  These workshops also serve to bring together professors, doctoral candidates, and others who are carrying out research work using MAESTRO, to share their experience, and increase the awareness of the MAESTRO developers with respect to the current demands on the software. 

At MAESTRO’s core is a structural design tool developed to suit the needs of ship designers and naval architects. It’s noteworthy that the MAESTRO development staff and support team are themselves naval architects who understand the ship design and analysis process. Our team of developers/naval architects has also created the Orca3D marine design and analysis plug-in for Rhino, with capabilities in the areas of hull design and fairing, intact hydrostatics and stability, resistance prediction, and weight and cost tracking.

We invite you to explore the website and contact us for a detailed discussion regarding your ship design needs and efforts.
