IES VisualPlate v3.00.0001
[Size: 20 MB] ... What will VisualPlate do for you?: Concrete Slab design simplified. Bending analysis for any plate material. With a program dedicated to these tasks, your job is made easier. Integrates with IES VisualAnalysis.

Why use VisualPlate?
You have a number of choices in the marketplace, for wall, slab or plate bending problems--even among IES tools!

VisualPlate shines in a number of areas:
    Dedicated to plate bending; easier to use than VisualAnalysis for this task
    Automated modeling--the FEA model is built and refined automatically.
    Concrete-specific rebar demand for slabs
    Von-Mises stress criteria checks for metal plates

What's New in Version 3.0?

IES released the latest upgrade in May 2015 with the following feature additions or improvements.
    Numerical Results now offers displacement table
    Circle and Polygon plates are now resizable
    Concrete details displayed by by FEA plate element, column-line, or plate-area
    Custom service load cases may be created
    Custom load combinations may be created
