Public Beta Release of SVOFFICE™5: SVFLUX™GE - Saturated / Unsaturated Groundwater Seepage Modeling Software

This new beta software release introduces an improved 3D CAD graphics subsystem and user interface that significantly speeds up workflow and makes it even easier to use.

SASKATOON, September 18, 2015

The SVFLUX™GE beta is the first package released from the new upcoming SVOFFICE™5/GE suite of geotechnical and geoenvironmental software products. Feedback from the growing customer base has resulted in hundreds of small improvements and a number of notable large improvements. The SVFLUX™GE software still supports the features which made it popular such as i) an easy-to-use user interface, ii) automatic mesh generation and refinement, iii) stable unsaturated soils seepage modeling, iv) 1D/2D/3D analysis, v) a comprehensive climatic user interface, and rigorous coupling with slope stability, contaminant transport, thermal and air-flow packages. In addition to these already strong offerings the following improvements are noted:

NEW High-Performance Graphics Engine: The new 3D CAD graphics engine provides measurably faster overall operation, with the biggest performance increases in the areas of...

  • creation and manipulation of larger more complex models
  • quicker rotation and translation of objects
  • high quality / print-ready client visuals
  • improved CAD editing controls and responsiveness.

Improved Graphing Visuals: High quality, exportable XY graphs.

NEW SVDESIGNER™ Conceptual Modeling Software Package: This brand new software program is tightly integrated within SVOFFICE™5/GE and allows for the representation and manipulation of complex 3D geometry and takes 3D modeling to a whole new level.

NEW SVSOILS™ Software Package (formerly SOILVISION®): This program has been completely re-designed from the ground up. It is now fully integrated with the SVOFFICE™5 product suite. This upgraded software allows simpler estimations of unsaturated hydraulic properties for groundwater seepage modeling. Also implemented is the ability to manage constitutive behaviours of complex oil-sand tailing materials.

Re-organized Menu: the menu system within the software has been updated and re-organized in a clearer format to streamline workflow. Primary functions are organized in a left to right format along the menu.

New SVOFFICE™5/GE Manager: the project manager dialog has been redesigned to greatly simplify its usage. Models can easily be grouped by project and stored anywhere on the users disk drive.

The premier groundwater seepage package on the market has continued to evolve and strengthen based on close interaction with our customers. We would welcome and encourage you to review our work with the beta version. Applications to beta-test the software may be found here!
