Why is SVOffice 2006 so popular?

SVOffice 2006 is quickly becoming one of the most popular geotechnical software packages available.

Want to try out SVOffice 2006? Our student versions are free and available to universities and consultants alike. The STUDENT version is highly capable of solving a wide range of problems. Feel the power of SVOffice 2006!

SVOffice 2006 includes six numerical modeling applications- SVFlux, ChemFlux, SVHeat, SVAirFlow, SVSolid, and SVDynamic - available individually or as a bundle.

The finite element mesh is very important in a numerical simulation. A finer finite element mesh commonly gives better calculation results. It has always been a question: what is the resolution of the finite element mesh that provides reasonably accurate results? This article does not answer the question specifically but will provide a sense of the relation between:
i) finite element mesh;
ii) hydraulic conductivity of the material; and
iii) simulation results.

A simple model was created to study these relationships. This example helps all modelers to be aware of this issue.

When running this model, the “auto mesh refinement” function in SVFLUX was turned off.

The model is made up of a rectangular region containing a sandy loam which has a width of 200 m and a height of 100m. The sandy loam has a saturated volumetric water content of 0.3 and a specific gravity of 2.65. The boundary conditions of the model are shown in the figure below.

SVS 2008 Conferences

We will be attending and exhibiting at the GeoHazards 2008 conference in May. This conference is being held in Quebec City from the 20th to the 24th.

Please let us know if you are in the area, we would be glad to see you. In 2008, SoilVision Systems will be attending and exhibiting at GeoConferences across North America.

We will be exhibiting and and attending the the 61st Canadian Geotechnical Conference and the 9th Joint CGS/IAH-CNC Groundwater Conference. This event is set to be held from the 21st to the 24th of September.
