New Release: Panel Deck Analysis in PDS V5.5!
NOTE: Users will be prompted to update their license before accessing PDS. When you update to PDS 5.5, your computer might display a message that reads: "SmartScreen prevented an unrecognized app from starting. Running this app might put your PC at risk." This is a common warning from Windows security; it is safe to run.
The new release of The Pallet Design System™ (PDS) Version 5.5 provides a new and more advanced analysis for panel-deck stringer-class pallets. Panel-deck block-class pallets can also be analyzed.
Limitations on connection withdrawal resistance have been modified in the analysis of stringer-class and block-class pallets. The stacked support analysis for overlap-base block-class pallets has also been improved.
