FEM analysis and design of reinforced concrete slabs according to Eurocode 2. The program uses enhanced user interface for the geometry and load input. The load is organised in actions (load groups) which are combined in load cases. No special care is needed for mesh, since the mesh is automaticaly generated. Kirchhoff (thin plate theory) internal forces are calculated, principal moments, design moments and reinforcement areas.
AMSES Plate is a "shareware program" and is provided at no charge
to the user for evaluation. Feel free to share it with your
friends, but please do not give it away altered or as part of
another system. The essence of "user-supported" software is to
provide personal computer users with quality software without high
prices, and yet to provide incentive for programmers to continue
to develop new products. If you find this program useful and find
that you are using AMSES Plate and continue to use AMSES Plate
after a reasonable trial period, you must make a commercial
registration. The registration fee will license one copy for use
on any one computer at any one time.
You must treat this software just like a book. An example is that
this software may be used by any number of people and may be
freely moved from one computer location to another, so long as
there is no possibility of it being used at one location while
its being used at another. Just as a book cannot be read by two
different persons at the same time.
Commercial users of AMSES Plate must register and pay for their
copies of AMSES Plate within 45 days of first use or their license
