Geotechnical engineering simulation

The leading design and analysis solution for geotechnical engineers

Developed by Bentley Systems, PLAXIS is a user-friendly, finite element package with trusted results that is used by geotechnical engineers globally. From excavations, embankments, foundations, tunnelling and mining to reservoir geomechanics, users can determine deformation and stability to assess the geotechnical risk.

An extensive range of 2D and 3D versions are available, including finite element analysis (FEA), limit equilibrium, dynamics, transient ground water flow and thermal capabilities, to suit your project requirements and budget. Geometry creation tools and automated settings allow you to solve geotechnical problems efficiently and accurately with the minimum of training.

Geotechnical applications often require advanced constitutive models for the simulation of the non-linear, time dependent and anisotropic behaviour of soils and rock.
