Dimensioning of slabs using subgrade reaction or constrained modulus.
The GGU-SLAB program can calculate slabs using subgrade or constrained modulus procedure. To solve the differential equations the finite-element method, with triangular elements, is used. The course of the subgrade modulus can be varied in almost any way you wish. The distribution of the constrained modulus can be defined using horizon profiles and an interpolation grid. Other important capabilities are:
- Any kind of slab outline, including holes
- Linearly variable bedding within an element
- Framework elements for modelling, e.g. foundation girders
- Individual springs, perpendicular to the slab, e.g. for the modelling of piles
GGU-Software runs on PCs with the following specifications:
