What is EverStressFE?

EverStressFE (current version 1.0) is a user-friendly 3D finite-element analysis tool for simulating the response of flexible asphalt pavement systems subjected to wheel loads. EverStressFE is useful for both flexible pavement researchers and designers who must perform complex analyses of flexible asphalt pavement systems. The University of Maine developed EverStressFE with funding from the Washington State Department of Transportation. EverStressFE is available free from this website to any interested users, and is easily installed on any Windows computer running XP or Vista. However, it may be necessary to install .NET framework in order to use this program, which is freely available from Microsoft®. The user will be prompted to perform these actions, if necessary, upon installation of this program. A complementary software package, EverFE, is available for the analysis of jointed plain concrete pavements.
