What are the limitations of APSDS 5.0 Evaluation Mode?

There is only one version of APSDS 5.0 – and it can be used in Evaluation Mode.

In evaluation mode you can evaluate many of the features including analysing the two Example problems.

APSDS will operate in Evaluation Mode if you do not have an Annual APSDS Licence.

Evaluation Mode has the following restriction:

You must use the standard Material Properties provided with the Example Jobs:

  • Asphalt: 
    Modulus =  1379 MPa, 2758 MPa
  • Cement Stabilized:
    Modulus =  5000 MPa
  • Subgrade:
    Modulus = 60 MPa, 150 MPa

You can use the Automatic Thickness Design and Parametric Analysis features.

Please note: APSDS in Evaluation Mode is solely for demonstration or educational purposes and may not be used for commercial purposes of any kind.
You must have a full licence to use the software for Commercial Projects.

Are you doing a CPEE Unit?

We have made APSDS available to CPEE students to facilitate completion of relevant design assignments. You can use APSDS in evaluation mode to analyse your assignments. There is no restriction on TOTAL Pavement thickness as long as you are using the material properties specified by your assignments.
