ULS and SLS analysis of reinforced concrete slabs

OPTUM MP is the only commercial software package available to offer a completely automated yield-line analysis using Limit Analysis – and at the same time offering calculation of the deflections in the Serviceability Limit State using FEA. All done within seconds.

Save materials and engineering hours

With OPTUM MP you will be able to optimize your design and use the minimal amount of rebar and concrete for your design. With optimized design often SLS becomes the dominating case. Check fast and easy – in same program – if deflections are withing the acceptable limits.

OPTUM MP in 2 minutes

This is why OPTUM MP is revolutionary

Limit Analysis (LA)

Estimate the limit load or bearing capacity in a single step. No need for calculating the complete load-displacement curve. Ideal for ULS calculations and 100% in compliance with EC7.

Upper and Lower bounds

Bracket the exact solution med unique upper and lower bound Finite Elements. Evaluate the precision of your estimates – never been possible before.

Elastoplastic Analysis (FEA)

Calculate the deflections of your slab using a nonlinear FE analysis based on an elastoplastic material behaviour assuming fully cracked concrete. Ideal for SLS calculations and allowing you to finalize and document your structure.



Unprecedented robustness and user-friendliness of FE solver. No need for adjusting and tuning numerical parameters – solver always finds a solution

100% Free – as in free beer

OPTUM MP is offered as a 100% free software tool that can be used for any commercial task or as part of academic research. Only thing we ask in return is that you remember to cite OPTUM MP when used in connection with any publication. Please read our EULA here.

Let’s improve MP - together

All ideas for improvement and enhancements are very welcome. We have a lot of ideas on our roadmap but it is not carved in stone. The roadmap will be adjusted according to input and suggestions we get along the way. For any ideas, suggestions, etc please use our inquiry form.

New license system – 100% cloud based

OPTUM MP is offered with our brand new cloud based license system. This means flexibility and ease of access for you. You can install OPTUM MP on any machine but only access one license at a time with the same user. The process for a first time user is the following:

  1. Download OPTUM MP and install
  2. First time you run the program you are asked to register
  3. Once email has been validated you are ready to go!

Each license is granted for a period of 6 months after which a renewal is required.
