SJ MEPLA – Stress calculation for glass constructions with SJ MEPLA

What is SJ MEPLA?

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.

SJ MEPLA is easy to use and easy to learn. The results of the examinations are clearly and meaningfully presented graphically and in protocol form.

If the geometry is not rectangular

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

Using the finite element method, you can calculate multi-layer glass (e.g. laminated safety glass) with SJ MEPLA in no time at all, even if it is hexagonal or round, for example.

In the field of glass construction the systems to be investigated are usually restricted to a few basic shapes (triangular, rectangular, …) for which new meshes always have to be produced. With the calculation of laminated safety glass units normally volume elements must be used.

The evaluation of the calculated results often occurs following the same pattern (deformations, stresses, verification) and until now it always had to be gleaned from the FE data.

And this where SJ MEPLA comes in:

All the input regarding the geometry, types of support, types of loading, computational formulations and required outputs are controlled and displayed using an input mask. The control and output of the results occurs visually via a dedicated graphical interface and by using a computational log which can be enclosed with the structural statics calculation.
