NASGRO® User's Manual

The NASGRO User's Manual is currently composed of a main manual and 26 appendices.

The appendices contain theoretical details, information, background and references for many of the solutions and methods used in NASGRO. Separate manuals are provided for the NASFORM (fatigue) module and the NASFLA elastic-plastic analysis option. The NASGRO User's Manual is accessible on-line from the main screen of NASGRO or by clicking on "Help" in the GUI. It is also accessible in pdf files from the folder in which the user installs the software. A hard copy of the manual is not provided and the user can print his own from the pdf files if desired.
