PLAXIS Is The Most Used Software For Geotechnical

PLAXIS 2D is The most used software for geotech applications

 

PLAXIS 2D is a powerful and user friendly finite element package intended for two-dimensional analysis of deformation and stability in geotechnical engineering and rock mechanics. PLAXIS is used worldwide by top engineering companies and institutions in the civil and geotechnical engineering industry. Applications range from excavations, embankments, and foundations to tunneling, mining and reservoir geomechanics.

One package, many applications

PLAXIS is equipped with a broad range of advanced features to model a diverse range of geotechnical problems, all from within a single integrated software package.

The most efficient tool for geotechnical modelling

PLAXIS uses predefined structural elements and loading types in a CAD-like environment. This empowers the user with fast and efficient model creation, allowing more time to interpret the results.

PLAXIS 3D is the most easy and robust tool  to model complex geometry of soil and structures.

PLAXIS 3D is a powerful and user friendly finite element package intended for three-dimensional analysis of deformation and stability in geotechnical engineering and rock mechanics. PLAXIS is used worldwide by top engineering companies and institutions in the civil and geotechnical engineering industry. Applications range from excavations, embankments and foundations to tunnelling, mining and reservoir geomechanics.

The most advanced tool on the market

PLAXIS 3D has advanced features to tackle modelling challenges in the most complex geotechnical projects, that cannot be solved with PLAXIS 2D.

Complex modelling made easy

Finite element modelling in full 3D has never been easier with a range of CAD-like drawing tools and extrude, intersect, combine and array operations. It’s almost like sculpting.

6 Reasons to choose Plaxis

 

Robust

The result of calculations and simulations is reliable and reproducible. PLAXIS is the industry standard for geotechnical design, that is why many challenging projects have been realised with PLAXIS.

Advanced Soil Models

Many advanced soil models are pre-installed in order to represent e.g. non-linear, stress and time-dependent behaviour of soil and rock masses. You can also add your own (user defined) soil models.

User Friendly

The self-explanatory, easy to use software interface allows a smooth workflow and eases the use for both beginners as well as experts in the field of geotechnical finite element modelling.

Customer Support and Services

Our Customer Support and Services teams consisting of geotechnical experts, embodies our commitment to you. They take responsibility, care about your problem and will always come with a solution.

Cost-effective

The software pays for itself before the end of your first project. Every subsequent project delivers additional ROI.

Efficient

The ratio of the useful work performed to the total time expended is maximal.

Customer's Feedback

It was really a fun experience using S-FOUNDATION. It is an easy-to-use software especially with an attractive interface (GUI). I have been teaching soil mechanics, geotechnical engineering & foundation engineering courses for the past 17 years in Malaysia with experience in PLAXIS.

Frequently Ask Questions

PLAXIS 2D is a special purpose two-dimensional finite element program used to perform deformation, stability and flow analysis for various types of geotechnical applications.

PLAXIS stands for Plain strain and Axial symmetry. It is used for the analysis of deformation, stability and groundwater flow in geotechnical engineering.

Interfaces are joint elements to be added to plates or geogrids to allow for a proper modelling of soil-structure interaction. Interfaces may be used to simulate, for example, the thin zone of intensely shearing material at the contact between a plate and the surrounding soil. Interfaces can be created next to plate or geogrid elements or between two soil polygons.

GSE stands for Geotechnical SELECT entitlement. It is an is an additional subscription system on top of the professional software licenses. Geotechnical SELECT subscribers benefit from the latest releases of their PLAXIS software maintenance and support from PLAXIS technical experts. In addition, some features of PLAXIS programs are only available to Geotechnical SELECT subscribers.

Positive pore stresses may also occur as a result of unloading in undrained materials. However, there is a limit to the amount of positive pore stresses (pore water tension) that can occur, which is the cavitation stress. This limit can be taken into account in PLAXIS 2D by selecting the Cavitation cut-off option and setting the cavitation stress.

One 15-node element can be thought of a composition of four 6-node elements, since the total number of nodes and stress points is equal. However, one 15-node element is more powerful than four 6-node elements as the former provides a fourth order interpolation for displacements and the numerical integration involves twelve Gauss points (stress points), whereas the latter provides a second order interpolation for displacements and the numerical integration involves three Gauss points.

In some practical problems, like the soil surface near a trench in clay sometimes shows tensile cracks which indicates that soil may also fail in tension instead of in shear. Such behaviour can be included in a PLAXIS analysis by selecting the tension cut-off and entering the tensile strength. Tension cut-off points are generally the visualization of all stress points that exceeds the entered value.
