ZENLam Software


ZENLAM is a web-based software that allows for basic stress and failure analysis of composite laminates.  It has the ability to enter any material, laminate layup and loading case and performs a ply-by-ply analysis.  Changes and calculations are performed instantaneously for rapid design iterations.  Calculations are based on Classical Laminated Plate Theory (CLPT) and includes analysis of both plate and beam cross-sections.  Thermal and moisture-induced stresses are also included (based on steady-state conditions).  User-friendly interface makes use easy and intuitive. No installation necessary since it is a web-based application.
