PLAXIS 2D

Complete 2D solution for geometric design and analysis

Complete 2D Geotechnical FEA

PLAXIS 2D is the most widely used  2D simulation solution for deformation and stability analysis of multiple construction stages within geotechnical engineering, considering steady-state groundwater flow for saturated and partially saturated conditions.

From excavations, embankments, and foundations to tunneling, mining, and reservoir geomechanics, engineers rely on PLAXIS 2D as their go-to finite element analysis (FEA) application. Use predefined structural elements and loading types in a CAD-like environment for fast and efficient model creation, allowing you more time to interpret the results.

Capabilities

  • Proven 2D Geotechnical Analysis
    Take advantage of robust and reliable settlement, stress, and safety analysis. For more than 25 years, industry leaders have chosen this software.
  • Comprehensive Soil Material Library
    Use a comprehensive soil material library of more than 40 materials to accurately model the behavior of anything ranging from soft soil to hard rock.
  • Conduct Dynamic Analysis
    Perform dynamic analysis to analyze the effects of man-made or natural seismic vibration in soil or structures.
  • Optimize Ground Freezing
    You can conduct optimal ground freezing design for tunnel construction or evaluate seepage through levees with transient flow analysis
  • Build More Efficiency
    Gain a competitive edge and rely on automated model build-up, results extraction, and reporting with command line and Python scripting.

PLAXIS 2D offers a complete 2D solution for geometric design and analysis, accurately simulating both non-linear, anisotropic soil/ rock behaviour and interaction with structures

PLAXIS 2D

PLAXIS 2D offers all the essential functionalities to perform everyday deformation and safety analysis for soil and rock that do not require the consideration of creep, steady state groundwater or thermal flow, consolidation analysis, or any time-dependent effects

PLAXIS 2D

PLAXIS 2D ADVANCED

PLAXIS 2D Advanced enhances your geotechnical design capabilities with more advanced features and material models to consider creep, flow-deformation coupling through consolidation analysis and steady state groundwater or heat flow.

It also solves your problems faster than PLAXIS 2D with the multicore solver.

PLAXIS 2D

PLAXIS 2D Ultimate

Extend the capabilities of PLAXIS 2D Advanced with additional DynamicsPlaxFlow and Thermal capabilities for analyzing the effects of vibrations in the soil, such as earthquake and traffic loads; simulate complex hydrological, time-dependent variations of water levels, or flow functions on model or soil boundaries; and assess the effect of transient heat flow on the hydraulic and mechanical behavior of soil.
