Plaxis v8.2 information
Geotechnical applications require advanced constitutive models for the simulation of the non linear, time dependent and anisotropic behaviour of soils and/or rock. In addition, since soil is a multi phase material, special procedures are required to deal with hydrostatic and non hydrostatic pore pressures in the soil.
Although the modelling of the soil itself is an important issue, many projects involve the modelling of structures and the interaction between the structures and the soil.
PlaxFlow is a finite element package intended for the two-dimensional and staeady-state analyses of saturated and unsaturated groundwater flow problems in geotechnical engineering and hydrology.
Groundwater flow applications require advanced models for the simulation of the unsaturated, time-dependent and anisotropic behaviour of soils
3D Tunnel information
Plaxis 3D Tunnel is a geotechnical finite element package which is specifically intended for the three-dimensional analysis of deformation and stability in tunnel projects
Geotechnical applications require advanced constitutive models for the simulation of the non-linear, time-dependent and anisotropic behaviour of soils and rock. In addition, since soil is a multi-phase material, special procedures are required to deal with hydrostatic and non-hydrostatic pore pressures in the soil. Although the modelling of the soil itself is an important issue, many tunnel projects involve the modelling of structures and the interaction between the structures and the soil.
3D Foundation information
Plaxis 3D Foundation is a finite element package intended for the three-dimensional deformation analysis of foundation structures
Foundations form the interaction between an upper structure and the soil. Settlements depend on local soil conditions and on the construction method. Especially for pile-raft foundations there is an important interplay between the pile, the raft and the soil to support the forces from the upper structure. In this interplay deformations are a key factor. Such a situation can only be analysed effectively by means of three-dimensional finite element calculations in which proper models are incorporated to simulate soil behaviour and soil-structure interaction.
