NESSUS Licensing

NESSUS is a modular computer program employing state-of-the-art methods for performing probabilistic analysis of structural/mechanical systems. NESSUS can be used to assess component/system reliability, to identify important random variables, to provide information for risk-based decision analysis and reliability-based optimization, and develop designs that are more cost-effective and reliable than those developed using traditional deterministic design methods.

A 30-day demonstration version of NESSUS is available at no cost to evaluate the general capabilities of the software. This is a reduced capability version with limits on the number of random variables and only allows analytical functions. Follow the Demo link to download this demonstration version.

NESSUS may be licensed on an annual or perpetual basis. Pricing and other licensing information can be found through the links below.

Purchase NESSUS—Single-user (annual or perpetual) and Academic licenses can be purchased online with a credit card by following this link.
