SJ MEPLA is the technologically leading program for dimensioning and calculating the stress on multi-layer glazing (plates). SJ MEPLA offers new approaches for stress calculation on laminated glass, insulated glass and point-supported glass - and for investigating pendulum impact and pressure shock. The dimensioning and stress calculation of plate structures under widely varying conditions is a standard task in routine engineering work. A special challenge is frequently presented by geometrical configurations which deviate from a rectangular shape. They are no longer calculated using tables or rules of thumb, but rather using the finite element method.
