Major Benefits and Abilities

  • Plate bending analysis (with any material)
  • Complex geometries, irregular, holes, rounded, etc.
  • Multiple plate thicknesses or solid properties
  • Holes in plate
  • Stiffeners or beams
  • Elastic spring supports along a line
  • Unlimited model size
  • Customizable 'architectural' grid lines
  • Automated FEA meshing
  • Flexible edge and point supports
  • Sophisticated thick-plate finite element formulation
  • Import & export DXF files
  • Export FEA model to VisualAnalysis for more advanced work

Loads and Load Combinations

  • Customizable load combinations (IBC & ASCE 7 built-in)
  • Custom service load cases
  • Plate self-weight may be included
  • Uniform or linear area loads, rectangular or circular
  • Rotate area loads in-the-plane
  • Ring loads (rectangular or circular)
  • Column loads, axial and moments
  • Linear loads

Analysis Results

  • Deflections plotted
  • Moment, shear values plotted
  • Nonlinear analysis capabilities
  • Moment diagrams along a line through plate

Reporting

  • Full-color reporting for a professional look and easy reading
