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.

In evaluation mode the TOTAL Pavement thickness that you analyse must be either 350, 550 or 1300 mm (as used for the Example problems).

Please note that the Automatic Thickness Design and Parametric Analysis features are de-activated in evaluation mode.

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.
