SVOFFICE™5/GT Geotechnical Suite is centered on an entirely new solver — the SVCORE™ Finite Element Engine. SVCORE™ has been developed over the past 20 years and is utilized in the newly introduced SVSOLID™GT and SVFLUX™GT modules.

These two modules introduce new analysis capabilities such as a greatly improved stress / deformation analysis of elasto-plastic materials and shear strength reduction (SSR) slope stability analysis. SVCORE™ also implements anchor analysis and the SVSOLID™ and SVFLUX™ modules may be fully coupled to perform small-strain or large-strain analysis.

Meshes are now fully integrated with the SVDESIGNER™ module and this allows for continuity in the workflow from model conceptualization to solution. Triangular/quadratic elements in 2D and tetrahedral elements in 3D are supported with fully automatic mesh generation and manual mesh refinement.

Staged construction or excavation analysis may also be performed in SVFLUX™GT and SVSOLID™GT or by coupling the modules.

The new SVOFFICE™5/GT suite provides market leading strength for the application of geotechnical analysis.

  • "I've been a geotechnical engineer for more than 25 years and SoilVision has the best tech support I have ever worked with. I truly appreciate their patience and help over the past year."

  • "Peter Brett Associates have been looking to update our existing slope stability software over the last year. After extensive research and trials, SVSLOPE® developed by SoilVision Systems Ltd. was found to meet all our existing and future design requirements. Its ease of use for modeling simple as well as complex geological and geometrical problems was a critical factor in our assessment as well as the incorporation of design to the Eurocodes. Their customer support has been faultless and their willingness to develop the software to meet our own specific design requirements is a most gratifying added bonus."

    "We love the fact that SVSLOPE® is part of an integrated suite of software and that, if required, 3D analysis can be undertaken. We would recommend this product to other geotechnical consulting firms."

  • "We have been using SVSLOPE® and SVFLUX™ for the past year and have found them to be efficient and productive engineering tools which have allowed us to offer our services in an efficient manner. The capability of automated increased discretization of the mesh is an absolute benefit to our modeling, reducing time and effort. We have found the software quick and easy for our engineers to train and utilize. I would recommend this product to other geotechnical consulting firms."

  • "The software is well documented and comes with number of useful example models. We were able to quickly begin creating models after a short review of the user interface and going through the available on-line webinars. The software offers solid benefits of less conservatism and the ability to model real geometry."

  • "This new software for stability analysis includes a number of state-of-the-art options for probabilistic slope stability analysis. This feature, combined with comprehensive deterministic analyses, will provide new opportunities to build confidence in the results of a site-specific analysis.”

  • "I'm excited to see the release of this new and innovative product. I look forward to and encourage the application of this software on additional geotechnical projects.”

  • "In consulting engineering practice, I am increasingly made aware of the important and beneficial role that modeling the unsaturated soil zone can play in providing the client with the best possible engineered solution. The SoilVision software has made it possible to readily estimate and incorporate unsaturated soil properties into the modeling of saturated-unsaturated soil systems.”

  • The new SVOFFICE™5/GT suite provides market leading strength for the application of geotechnical analysis.

    The modules SVSOLID™GT and SVFLUX™GT introduce new analysis capabilities such as a greatly improved stress / deformation analysis of elasto-plastic materials and shear strength reduction (SSR) slope stability analysis.
