Lug  Analysis
metalug add new case study: Double Shear Lug

Centric Engineers is excited to announce that metalug is getting a feature-lift! Currently under development, metalug is going double...double shear lug that is! 

Adding a new case study is a significant step in metalug's maturation into a viable lug analysis program. Now a user can expand his/her analysis by either selecting the simple single lug case (as before) or the more complex double shear case that includes both pin and bushing analysis. 

Knowing that your pin is undersized is important...an undersized pin can lead to undesirable pin bending and permanent deformation. No worries, metalug provides a balanced design recommendation that provides an optimal lug and bushing thickness needed to prevent pin bending.

metalug v2.0.0 release date is set for some time in December. 

Current Live Version of metalug is v1.0.1
