All SVOffice™ 2009 applications run from one interface. These applications also work together to help bring your project from raw data to a solution.

PROFESSIONAL COUPLING

All of our Professional software packages gives you the capability to fully couple your modeling with other SVOffice™ 2009 software packages. Coupling allows solution of multiple processes within the context of a single modeling problem. The coupling capabilities in SVOffice™ 2009 are the most advanced of any particular geotechnical software suite. The following table provides a summary of each coupling, with the corresponding processes listed below. These couplings are available and benchmarked in the current release of SVOffice™ 2009. Please contact us to determine if any particular coupling is relevant to your particular application.

STANDARD EXPORT CAPABILITIES

    All of our Standard software packages will allow you to export data to other SVOffice™ 2009 Standard packages. Exporting data allows you to take a snapshot of the particular stress state or model state at a point in time and analyze it in light of a different process. Multiple snapshots at differing times can be exported between packages. Other terms commonly used for this type of analysis are: iterative coupling, bootstrap coupling, or one-way coupling where data exchange is only in one direction.
