EBPlate is a piece of software developed by CTICM with a partial funding of the European Research Fund for Coal and Steel (RFCS). It assesses the critical stresses associated to the elastic buckling of plates loaded in their plan.
EBPlate software provides accurate values of elastic critical stresses for a wide field of practical cases of rectangular plates subject to in-plane loading. Plates can be either stiffened or unstiffened, the stiffening being provided by longitudinal and/or transverse stiffeners; orthotropic plates can also be treated. Complex stresses patterns can easily be defined, including patch loads. Numerous display possibilities are available for data and results.
The User Graphical Interface is available in English, French, German and Spanish, whereas the Help file is provided only in English and in French. EBPlate V2. 01 has been validated and runs on the following OS: Microsoft Windows XP, Microsoft Windows Vista et Microsoft Windows Seven.
* EBPlate download link provides freeware version of the software.
Buckling Analysis for Plates with or Without Stiffeners
The RF-/PLATE-BUCKLING is available as an add‑on module for RFEM/RSTAB or as a separate stand‑alone program.
Lateral Torsional Buckling of Beams
LTBeam is a software which deals with the elastic Lateral Torsional Buckling of Beams under bending action about their major axis.
Cross-Section Elastic Buckling Analysis
CUFSM includes tools for generalized beam-column loading and analysis. CUFSM provides both the semi-analytical finite strip method for creation of the cross-section signature curve as well as the generalized finite strip method for other end boundary conditions.
This calculation deals with the deflection, stress and variation of forces in the loaded flat plates.
Buckling Resistance and Geometric Imperfections of Columns
The following application allows determining the resistant capacity of bi-supported columns of open thin-walled sections subjected to axial stress and the equivalent geometric imperfections.
