BSTunnelLining 0.1.0 Released

I am very happy to announce that BSTunnelLining is released today.

BSTunnelLining is a finite element modeling program using beam and spring elements to analyze multi-ring segmental tunnel linings.

BSTunnelLining is created to help engineers and researchers to analyze segmental tunnel linings efficiently. Generally, it is not convenient to use general commercial FEA software to simulate segmental tunnel linings with beam and spring elements. BSTunnelLining can easily generate joint compression springs, shear springs, rotational springs. The longitudinal springs are able to couple the shear stiffness or rotational stiffness with compression force. The springs can be customized with JavaScript to accommodate any spring nonlinearity. Ground shear springs and tension only normal springs are readily to be used to simulate ground support.

This is just the very first version of BSTunnelLining. I believe that there will be many aspects of it required to be improved or implemented. I am more than happy to hear from you if you have any questions, suggestions, or comments.
