SAGE Profile 3.1 development underway…

One year following the release of our major upgrade to version 3.0, we are pleased to announce that development is well underway on version 3.1, incorporating a series of new features allowing designers to model cyclic lateral buckling, including plastic pipeline deformation.

The main new features anticipated for this version include:

  • Modelling plastic deformation of the pipeline steel
  • Modelling cylindrical contact objects such as sleepers and counteracts
  • Modelling the friction between the pipeline and contact objects
  • New ‘article’ format for help topic documentation

Version 3.1 is planned to become available in early 2017.
