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.
