Warning The check marks for the professional version do not indicate the modules are included in the software, but it means those modules are available in Ple4Win.

Warning Project databases created with the Educational version are not compatible with the Professional version.

Info The Educational module configuration is sufficient to perform day-to-day pipeline behaviour and stress/strain analysis, but due to the limited number of elements, the results are on the non-conservative side, because of the limited element length required to specify the pipe/soil model properly.
