Features GEO-SLOPE GeoStudio
- Broad Reach
While primarily intended for analyzing the stability of natural and man-made earth slopes, you can also use GeoStudio Basic for the analysis of confined and unconfined steady-state seepage problems, for the analysis of linear-elastic settlement and stress distribution problems, for the tracking of contaminants within ground water flow, for the analysis of freeze-thaw problems, and for 1D vadose zone and soil cover analyses.
- Modeling Practice
A common tendency when using powerful modeling software is to build numerical models that are geometrically too complex. The geometric complexity is usually not required to obtain meaningful results. In fact, we at GEO-SLOPE strongly advocate that a numerical model should be a simplified abstraction of the actual field conditions. Adopting this modeling principle makes GeoStudio Basic a very powerful analytical tool for use in practice in spite of its geometric limitations.
- Evaluation and Upgrading
GeoStudio Basic allows you to evaluate a very high-end geotechnical software package with a minimal investment. Starting with GeoStudio Basic is an excellent strategy. Once you are comfortable with using the software and you find that your projects dictate analyzing more complexity, you can upgrade to the full-featured version. Everything that you have learned and done with the Basic Edition will be directly usable in the full-featured edition. Nothing will be lost by first acquiring the Basic Edition and subsequently acquiring the full-featured edition.
- VADOSE/W Basic
The included VADOSE/W Basic puts the power in your hands to solve complex 1D vadose zone and soil cover analyses accurately and confidently. VADOSE/W Basic includes the same geometric limitations as the rest of the GeoStudio Basic suite, with the additional restriction that all elements must be in a 1D column.
- Easy to Use
Defining a Problem
Beginning an analysis is as simple as defining the geometry by drawing regions and lines that identify soil layers. Once drawn, you would choose an analysis method, specify soil properties and pore-water pressures, define reinforcement loads, and create your trial slip surfaces.
