CHECKPOLE v1.3.0 is now live and can be downloaded here. New features and enhancements include:
- Complete base plate design for grouted and ungrouted cases, including plate thickness checks, grout pad bearing checks, and compression zone visualisation. Previous versions have assumed base plates are ungrouted and calculated bolt forces based on an elastic stress distribution, which leads very conservative bolt forces when the base plate is actually grouted.
- The specific component design ratios are now displayed in the status bar along the bottom. Previous versions just listed whether the component passed or failed.
- Copy and delete foundation strata layers with a single click.
- Improved summary and detailed reporting.
