service =[1|2|3]
The service class is indicated by introducing the number of the corresponding service class, 1, 2 or 3

example: service=1

LoadDuration =[I|S|M|L|P]
Load duration is indicated by introducing one of the following parameters : I, S,M L or P

example: LoadDuration=S

gammaM =[float]
Partial factor for material properties, also accounting for model uncertainties and dimensional variations. This input is a number. example: gammaM=1.25

format=[xml|json]
Choose the language you wish the output to be in. Indicate either json or xml.

example: format=json

Success Response Example:
Code: 200
Example content: {"sigmaC90d":"1.64","fc90d":"1.80","areaEf":"9000","kc90":"1.75","index":"0.52"}
Response Params sigmaC90d= Design compressive stress perpendicular to the grain measured in N/mm2.
fc90d= Design compressive strength perpendicular to the grain measured in N/mm2.
areaEf= Effective contact area in compression perpendicular to the grain measured in mm2.
kc90= Is a factor taking into account the load configuration, the possibility of splitting and the degree of compressive deformation.
index= This value checks the 6.3 formula of EN 1995-1-1:20004+A1:2008 and should be lower or equal than 1.
