What is EverFE?

EverFE (current version 2.24) is a user-friendly 3D finite-element analysis tool for simulating the response of jointed plain concrete pavement (JPCP) systems to axle loads and environmental effects. EverFE is useful for both concrete pavement researchers and designers who must perform either complex nonlinear or simple linear stress analyses of JPCP. The Universities of Maine and Washington jointly developed EverFE with funding from the Washington and California State Departments of Transportation. EverFE is available free from this website to any interested users, and is easily installed on any Windows computer running NT4.0, Windows 2000, or XP. A complementary software package, EverStressFE, is available for the analysis of jointed plain concrete pavements.
