SoilWorks provides total solutions to geotechnical-structural problems related to the practical design of Tunnels, Slopes, Rock Slope with Stereo-Graphic Analysis, Soft Ground, Foundations, Excavations, Seepage and dynamic analysis. The user-friendly and practice-friendly work environment allows the geotechnical and structural engineers to produce highly reliable results in conjunction with rational design and high quality deliverables.
Unlike commonly available existing software, SoilWorks provides the groundbreaking concept of modeling, analysis, compilation and presentation of results and report generation using the latest technology in software development for the practicing engineers. The engineers will benefit from being able to analyze various cases simultaneously, check design errors and escape from repetitive tasks in the design process.
SoilWorks has been designed to handle the full range of geotechnical applications with modern and highly developed functions to expedite the modeling and result extraction processes.Key features
Used for the design of complex underground structures and foundations, this module incorporates a set of advanced finite element modeling functions that have been designed for the study of soil structure interaction. Interface elements can be created to simulate the relative displacement and skin friction of underground structures against soils. Surface springs can be created for projects that require an analysis of the effects of adjacent structures on the tunnel or foundationGround Module Details
This module serves to define arc failure surface for limit equilibrium analysis. You can define the arc radius increment and number of arcs through an input menu and then define your grid range and arc failure surface by simply selecting your desired points of interest on the model itself. SoilWorks also features a specialized function for defining polygonal or irregular failure surfaces. There is also a function that will automatically generate your failure surface based on your input criteria.Slope Module Details
This module includes input options for key ground material consolidation parameters such as SPT-N values, compression index, and strength increase ratio. There are specialized functions for the defining of drain properties and positions as well as preloading parametric analysis. The soft ground module also provides the option of selecting specific settlement calculation positions. This feature is useful for projects in which require the calculation of settlements in multiple positions due to asymmetrical loading and foundations.Soft Ground Module Details
The module includes standard p-y curves for clay, sand, soft rock, hard rock, and c-phi models. You can also import your own p-y curves directly into the program. These can be directly copied and pasted from excel format tables.Another unique feature of the foundation module is that all models and results can be modeled and analyzed on a single file. This feature is especially useful when several pile configurations must be analyzed to determine the optimal design.Foundation Module Details
The seepage module has input functions that enable you to model boundaries for both steady state and transient state conditions. Seepage rate functions can be defined to account for nodal head, nodal flux, and surface flux. Assigning the head and flux properties to the corresponding boundaries will simulate the desired water flow.Seepage Module Details
Response spectrum functions can be imported directly from excel into the program or they can be defined using the integrated design code options (IBC2000/ASCE7-98 is included). Response spectrum loads can then be defined with damping ratio taken into account. Elastic and viscous boundaries can be automatically generated for dynamic analysis. The dynamic module also includes an extensive database of response spectrum functions and time history functions that simulate ground acceleration load and dynamic nodal loads.Dynamic Module Details
