Public Beta Release of SVOFFICE™5: SVAIR™GE - Pore-Air-Flow Modeling Software

New software release introduces new graphics engine and user interface upgrades.

SASKATOON, November 18, 2015

The beta release of SVAIR™GE is the fifth beta release of a package from the new SVOFFICE™5 suite of geotechnical and geoenvironmental software products. The new SVAIR™GE software implements the improvements of a new high-performance graphics engine which ultimately makes editing 3D numerical models even easier. The SVAIR™GE software still supports the features which made it popular such as:

  1. An easy-to-use user interface,
  2. Automatic mesh generation and refinement,
  3. Stable freeze/thaw transition performance,
  4. 1D/2D/3D analysis, and
  5. Rigorous coupling with flow and thermal packages.

In addition to these already strong offerings the following improvements are noted:

NEW High-Performance Graphics Engine: The new 3D CAD graphics engine provides measurably faster overall operation, with the biggest performance increases in the areas of...

  • creation and manipulation of larger more complex models
  • quicker rotation and translation of objects
  • faster transformations
  • high quality / print-ready client visuals
  • improved CAD editing controls and responsiveness.

Improved Graphing Visuals: High quality, exportable XY graphs.

NEW SVDESIGNER™ Conceptual Modeling Software Package: This brand new software program is tightly integrated within SVOFFICE™5 and allows for the representation and manipulation of complex 3D geometry and takes 3D modeling to a whole new level.

NEW SVSOILS™ Software Package (formerly SOILVISION®): This program has been completely re-designed from the ground up. It is now fully integrated with the SVOFFICE™5 product suite. This upgraded software allows simpler estimations of unsaturated hydraulic properties for groundwater seepage modeling. Also implemented is the ability to manage constitutive behaviours of complex oil-sand tailing materials.

Re-organized Menu: the menu system within the software has been updated and re-organized in a clearer format to streamline workflow. Primary functions are organized in a left to right format along the menu.

New SVOFFICE™5 Manager: the project manager dialog has been redesigned to greatly simplify its usage. Models can easily be grouped by project and stored anywhere on the users disk drive.

Key applications of the software include:

  • Air flow in/around building foundations
  • Soil-vapor extraction
  • Environmental remediation simulation
  • Coupled water/heat/air flow through waste-rock piles

The premier 2D/3D pore-air-flow finite element package on the market has continued to evolve and strengthen based on close interaction with our customers. We would welcome you to review our work with the beta version. Applications to beta-test the software may be found here!
