The innovative new SVFLUX™WR module combines the leading edge SVOFFICE™ CAD-based 2D/3D model building and visualization interfaces with the groundwater modeling abilities of the FEHM solver developed by Los Alamos National Labs (LANL). The software was developed over 20 years as phase one of a collaboration between SoilVision and LANL. The FEHM solver produces fast solutions of highly non-linear models considering unsaturated soil mechanics. Therefore, regional flow models including many pumpling wells with complex geometry can be modeled. The solution implements a powerful triangular (2D) and tetrahedral (3D) mesher.

What Our Customers Say

  • "We have allowed our students the choice of using multiple Geotechnical software suites in our Dam Design and other Geotechnical courses. Our students consistently gravitate towards SoilVision software as being the most modern and user-friendly."

  • "We used the SVFLUX™ software to perform unsaturated flow modeling of a heap leach facility. The interface was easy-to-use and the automatic mesh refinement allowed solution of a highly non-linear unsaturated flow scenario. I would recommend this software for use in modeling of heap leach facilities."

  • "I used the climatic coupling of the SVFLUX™ software in my research and the software's abilities were central to the completion of the numerical modeling aspect of my program. I particularly found the flexibility offered by SVFLUX™ and the responsiveness of the technical team at SoilVision to my inquiries extremely helpful. I would recommend this software to anyone else integrating seepage modeling with climatic coupling.”

  • "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."

  • "I'm very pleased with the software. It is stable, versatile, and fast, and so far has responded to my demands. Well worth the investment.”

  • "We found the response time regarding implementation of the new boundary condition feature impressive. The software has subsequently been utilized on various projects within AMEC including dry stack and traditional tailing storage facility design, as well as numerous closure cover systems. The comprehensive climatic and material characteristic relationships and CAD interface have been instrumental in reducing both modeling time and cost."

  • "The SVFLUX™ software has provided a stable and productive environment by which we have been able to quickly apply unsaturated flow numerical models and further develop this area of our business.”

  • "The SVFLUX™ software is very efficient, flexible and comprehensive. It fits well to different simulations while allowing you to quickly change several parameters without having to rebuild the model.”

  • "Research projects often require the use of raw data from conventional software packages to be incorporated into advanced customized solutions. It is often hard to find commercial software that allows you access to the raw data. SVFLUX™ not only gives you access, it allows you to export the raw data in several user defined formats. This feature has been invaluable in my Ph.D. program.”

  • "The software developed by SoilVision Systems Ltd. for 3D saturated / unsaturated flow is a powerful tool for the analysis and design of reclamation systems for waste rock and mine tailings. Groundwater flow together with fate and transport issues are central to the design of remedial measures. SoilVision has demonstrated the ability to provide 3D solutions for difficult unsaturated flow problems in waste deposits at mine sites that cannot be solved using current software available. I feel that SoilVision offers a key service with respect to the remediation and design of long-term closure systems for mine waste management.”

    Hydrogeology:

  • Time-tested and Industry Proven

    The FEHM solver was utilized on the famous Yucca Mountain nuclear storage project to model the regional groundwater flow to ascertain the ability of the site to accept nuclear waste.

    The numerical background of the FEHM computer code can be traced to the early 1970s when it was used to simulate geothermal and hot dry rock reservoirs. The primary use over a number of years was to assist in the understanding of flow fields and mass transport in the saturated and unsaturated zones below the potential Yucca Mountain repository. Today FEHM is used to simulate groundwater and contaminant flow and transport in deep and shallow, fractured and un-fractured porous media throughout the US DOE complex. FEHM has proved to be a valuable asset on a variety of projects of national interest including Environmental Remediation of the Nevada Test Site, the LANL Groundwater Protection Program, geologic CO2 sequestration, Enhanced Geothermal Energy (EGS) programs, Oil and Gas production, Nuclear Waste Isolation, and Arctic Permafrost....
