The Dutch pallet racking manufacturers Nedcon and Hovuma requested the development of a user-friendly software program that verifies the design of pallet racking systems by performing a nonlinear finite element analysis based on international design code as Eurocode 3 and FEM 10.2.02. With reference to a library of client defined components the model can be defined easily and the software automatically defines a finite element model with loadings, properties and imperfections. Component unity checks are performed. Results are output both numerically and graphically. A TNO Certificate can be issued only for pallet racking systems consisting of certified components only.
