Note:

COSMOSXpress design analysis results are based on linear static analysis and the material is assumed isotropic. Linear static analysis assumes that: 1) the material behavior is linear complying with Hooke’s law, 2) induced displacements are adequately small to ignore changes in stiffness due to loading, and 3) loads are applied slowly in order to ignore dynamic effects.

Do not base your design decisions solely on the data presented in this report. Use this information in conjunction with experimental data and practical experience. Field testing is mandatory to validate your final design. COSMOSXpress helps you reduce your time-to-market by reducing but not eliminating field tests.
