Numerical Modeling Solutions

Our models are particularly well-suited to solving 3D systems involving unsaturated flow. In particular, our company has invested significant effort in research over the past number of years. Our software offers a number of technical advantages over other comparable software packages in the world. Therefore our software packages are designed to provide technical advantages to geotechnical consulting firms.

Geotechnical or Hydrological Consulting Firms

SoilVision Systems Ltd. continues to establish partnerships with geotechnical and hydrological consulting firms. Our company specializes in providing software tools and training services which can provide competitive advantages to firms and increase their level of expertise in the numerical modeling of subsurface processes. There are a few different ways that our firm can partner with your firm in mutually beneficial ways. Our company has a proven track record in working with major consulting firms to improve their level of practice in the field of numerical modeling. We are available to partner with your firm in the following ways:

  • Training: if your firm desires to increase knowledge in the area of numerical modeling we can provide training courses which can increase the level of competency for solving specific applications. Options for such training may be found here.
  • Model review services: if your firm is relatively confident in performing numerical modeling but it is the first time using our software then our firm can provide expert review of both conceptual models and final modeling results. This can result in increased quality of numerical modeling results.
  • Project collaboration: if you're consulting company does not have an experienced numerical modeler on staff then our firm can partner with you to develop proposals and win contracts which may have a significant numerical modeling component. Working with us can provide insight on the numerical modeling process and can educate your firm for successful winning of future contracts while utilizing our software.

Mining or Government Companies

Our company has performed both research level and consulting projects for mining companies and government organizations in the past. Our heavy focus on research allows us to address cutting-edge problems which were previously deemed unsolvable. If you are mining company or a goverment organization then we can provide the following services:

  • Model review services: Our firm can provide expert review of both conceptual models and final modeling results. This can result in increased quality of numerical modeling results. Our involvement in numerical model development makes this particularly adept at discovering deficiencies with any particular existing modeling work.
  • Large Model Solution: In this scenario a model will be created and solved which would typically be challenging for most environments. This could be a particularly long 1-D cover model or a particularly complex 2-D or 3-D model. Examples of areas of specialty may be seen below.
  • Custom Model Development: Our firm has provided custom solutions to mining clients for which existing commercial or academic solutions do not exist. This type of arrangement would typically involve modification of our existing codes to solve a more challenging problem.

High Performance Computing Centre

Our software company routinely invests in the latest high-end computing equipment. Research has also been performed on solution of large models using parallel processors. Currently all our finite element software packages may utilize up to four concurrent processors to expedite the solution of large problems. A significant amount of research has gone into determining how to expedite the solution of large finite element and limit equilibrium slope stability models. Research continues on the expedited solution of large 3-D numerical models utilizing parallel processing and liquid cooled high-performance overclocked machines.

Our high-performance computing center can offer advanced services for solving particularly challenging problems. Problems which can typically result in large computation times can be managed to solve in reasonable times.

If you would like to engage our high-performance computing center please contact us here. Specific solutions typically include the following:

  • Model Optimization: in this service our company provides a review of the model you have created. An analysis then determines if the model can be optimized to run faster or more efficiently.
  • Model Review: In this scenario our company is hired to review and numerical model created in another software package. The model can be reviewed in terms of its conceptual principles or the correctness of the reported output.
  • Large Model Solution: In this scenario a model will be created and solved which would typically be challenging for most environments. This could be a particularly long 1-D cover model or a particularly complex 2-D or 3-D model. Examples of areas of specialty may be seen below.
