We offer three state-of-the-art Pavement Design packages:
CIRCLY is a comprehensive program for analysis and design of pavements. The program can calculate stresses, strains and displacements induced by a variety of surface loads on layered soil systems. CIRCLY is widely used in Australia and overseas and is an integral part of the Austroads Pavement Design Guide.
APSDS (Airport Pavement Structural Design System) is a special version for airport pavements.
HIPAVE (Heavy Industrial PAVEment design) is for the mechanistic analysis and design of flexible pavements subjected to the extremely heavy wheel loads associated with freight handling vehicles in industrial facilities, in particular, intermodal container terminals. It is designed to conveniently model each combination of vehicle model and container load and to combine the damage using the Cumulative Damage Factor concept.
This Table compares the features of the three packages:
|Road pavements-streets, roads, highways||Airport pavements||Container and intermodal terminal pavements|
|no wander||rigorous wander algorithm||rigorous wander algorithm|
|parametric analysis||parametric analysis||parametric analysis|
|economic analysis||economic analysis||economic analysis|

General Stress Analysis
Map3D is a state of the art three-dimensional boundary element stress analysis package for design and analysis of surface and underground soil and rock mechanics problems arising in civil and mining engineering. Map3D features state of the art user-friendly graphical pre- and post-processors for fast problem set-up and result presentation.
Underground Coal Mining
The MINLAY system is a state of the art boundary element stress analysis package for design of underground coal mines. MINLAY is a major breakthrough, giving a three-dimensional analysis capability to any mining engineer with a PC. MINLAY features user-friendly graphical pre- and post-processors for fast problem set-up and result presentation.
