- The best New Nautilus height to choose;
- The slab deformation;
- Materials consumption;
- Punching check;
- Deflection check.
The calculator is available in English, Italian, French, German, Spanish, Portuguese and Russian languages. It is useful to the engineers who face the study of lightened slabs with Geoplast New Nautilus while providing a calculation report with all input and output data, which can also be downloaded in PDF format. A helpful and accurate starting point for further in-depth analysis.
