DETAILED FEATURES

  • Database functionality means unlimited storage of soil tests organized by project and borehole
  • Adherence to ASTM test standards separation of sieve and hydrometer data
  • Ability to fit gap-graded, bimodal soils with equations from Fredlund & Wilson
  • Support for English & Metric Units
  • Calculation of statistics
  • Calculation of particle-size density functions for unimodal and bimodal soils
  • Professional report generation allows selection and reporting of multiple soils on the same report
  • Automatic calculation of D10, D20, D30, D50, D60 and %Clay, %Silt, %Sand, and %Coarse for both USDA and USCS (ASTM) Classification standards
  • Automatic classification by USDA or USCS (ASTM) methods
  • Non-linear regression of unimodal or bimodal equations to represent the grain-size distribution
  • Theoretical estimation of unsaturated soil properties. Over 20 theoretical and statistical methods are included for the prediction of soil-water characteristic curves and unsaturated hydraulic conductivity curves based on grain-size and other data. Estimation methods are highly valuable for the modeling of seepage through the vadose zone.
  • Pre-existing laboratory database of over 6200 soils. Over 95% of theses oils have a laboratory measured soil-water characteristic curve. Laboratory data also exists for over 2500 saturated hydraulic conductivities and over 600 unsaturated hydraulic conductivity curves
  • Automatic calculation of grain-size statistics
  • Geostatistics module allows quick statistical analysis of your laboratory data.
  • Mathematical fits of soil property functions allow soils in certain "bands" to be selected.
  • Free form search wizard allows searching of the database based on almost any criteria.
  • Mathematical model provides input for seepage and groundwater finite element and finite difference models.
  • Software interfaces with many modeling packages, graphics packages, GIS, report writers, and borehole log programs
