50 years Ple4Win anniversary
On October 1, 2015, we celebrated the 50th anniversary of Ple4Win, more specifically that 50 years ago the necessity arose to calculate the behaviour of buried pipelines in soft soils. Since then, we have been analysing the behaviour of pipelines, modelling the pipe-soil interaction and developing specialised computer programs to do those calculations.
