GUI

NASGRO® includes individual graphical user interfaces (GUIs) for each of the analysis modules to guide users in a Windows environment to create batch files and to facilitate easy input of data. Pull-down menus and figures make the input intuitive. All the information is readily available for entry, review, and modifications.  The user can perform sensitivity studies on the same crack case using different geometric parameters or scale factors. The NASBEM GUI facilitates the construction of the geometric model with CAD-like functionality using pull-down menus and dialog boxes, plotting the geometry as it is assembled to check for errors.
