Customizable Solutions

Our products are unique in that the problem formulation may be edited by the user. The numerical solution of each problem is represented as a mathematical text file. The FlexPDE solver uses a mathematical scripting language similar to the Mathcad or Matlab products.

This unique feature allows the following benefits to our software packages:

  • University students may view the mathematical formulation they are solving including governing partial differential equations (PDEs).
  • Our products are ideal for research in that experimental formulations may be tested with no programming efforts. Customized boundary conditions may be added or additional partial differential equations may be coupled in.
  • Consultants may provide customized finite element solutions to their clients.

An example of a typical scripting file showing the 2D formulation of Richards equation may be seen in the following figure:

    SoilVision Systems Ltd. invests regularly in a significant amount of internal research. SoilVision Systems Ltd. is actively pursuing research collaboration with professors around the world. If you would like to collaborate with us to perform research using our software please contact us here.

    If you are an academic institution in Canada, SoilVision Systems would like to talk to you regarding possible collaboration. It is possible to obtain funding for select research projects through various funding agencies. Please contact us here for more information.

    Developmental Collaboration

    SoilVision Systems Ltd. is actively interested in collaborating with universities relating to ongoing development of various modular pieces of software. If you have an idea which will involve development of a module of software we are interested in speaking to you relating working out an arrangement for collaboration. Please contact us here if you have such an idea.

  • Our software packages were developed based on research in unsaturated soils performed at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon, SK, Canada. The most recent methods for analyzing unsaturated soils have been implemented in our software and we are committed to its continual improvement. As such, we will continue to make available our peer-reviewed research findings in conference and journal papers as we receive permission from publishers. Please take some time to review our library of related research materials.
