Import AutoCAD DXF geometry into SVFlux!


The latest version of the SVFlux software now incorporates import of AutoCAD DXF shapes into your model geometry. This feature greatly reduces model creation time as all soil regions may now be imported "as-is" from specified layers of the DXF file. SVFlux is currently one of the only seepage packages in the world to be able to offer this advanced feature. Current seepage modeling software only allows the user to import DXF geometry to act as a "guide" to re-drawing the seepage model. SVFlux imports the DXF geometry directly into the model.

The automatic mesh generation then uses the current line segment intersections to build a mesh that automatically adapts to the imported geometry.


Upcoming SoilVision and SVFlux Short Course!

We are presenting a short course at the upcoming CGS conference in Winnipeg, Manitoba. The short course will be an excellent opportunity to "brush up" on topics such as unsaturated soil property estimation and seepage and contaminant transport modeling. Topics will include the following:

  • Estimation of the soil-water characteristic curve for seepage modeling.
  • The theory of modeling groundwater movement in saturated and unsaturated soils.
  • An overview of 2D and 3D seepage modeling using the SVFlux software package.
  • An introduction to the powerful new ChemFlux contaminant transport software package.

The short course promises to be informative and interesting as well as providing a view of the latest software technology available. Details of registration for the short course may be found at:

Online ChemFlux demonstration!

Jason Stianson
Software Engineer
SoilVision Systems Ltd.

SoilVision Systems Ltd. is providing an online demonstration of the capabilities of the new ChemFlux contaminant transport modeling software on April 24, 2002 at 2:30 Central Standard Time. ChemFlux promises to provide a next-generation software tool for the practicing professional. Characterized by automatic mesh generation and refinement, 2D and 3D solutions, and fast, stable solutions of diffusion, advection, adsorption and decay, ChemFlux promises significant advantages in tracking the movement of contaminants on a site.

The presentation will be 1 hour in length and will involve the following topics:

  • Overview of the ChemFlux software (Powerpoint presentation)
  • Input, solution, and visualization of a simple 2D problem (live software demonstration)
  • Input, solution, and visualization of a simple 3D problem (live software demonstration)

What do I need?
All you need to view this presentation is an internet connection with a minimum of a 56k modem and a telephone line. The powerpoint slides and all software demonstrated will appear on your computer screen and you will be able to follow all mouse clicks of the demonstrator. We are only accepting four people so register today! Registrants will be accepted on a first-come basis.

Proceed to the following web page to fill out and submit a registration form. This seminar is only open to residents of North America. Future presentations will involve regions outside North America.
