The modeling software for geo-engineers and earth scientists.
GeoSlope sviluppa e commercializza i migliori software CAD per la modellazione geo-tecnica e geo-ambientale.
GeoStudio è la suite software che integra tutti i prodotti GeoSlope in un unico ambiente di lavoro (BUILD3D, SLOPE/W, SEEP/W, SIGMA/W, QUAKE/W, TEMP/W, CTRAN/W, AIR/W).
Questa suite risponde in maniera completa a tutte le necessità di modellazione geo-tecnica.
In GeoStudio la definizione del modello viene condivisa tra i diversi tipi di analisi; per esempio una volta specificata un’analisi della stabilità con SLOPE/W, è possibile utilizzare SEEP/W per rappresentare graficamente la geometria senza definirla di nuova. Tutti i dati sono ora salvati con la stessa tipologia di file basata sul formato XML; in questo modo è possibile applicare le diverse analisi agli stessi dati e condividere i risultati in tutte le analisi.
GeoStudio è disponibile in quattro versioni diverse per rispondere a al meglio a ogni tipo di esigenza. Inoltre i software inclusi in GeoStudio possono essere acquistati anche come pacchetti singoli.
Why choose GeoStudio?
Rigorous analytical capability. Sophisticated product integration. Broad application to diverse geo-engineering and earth science problems.
Combine geometries and analyses in a single project
GeoStudio enables you to combine analyses using different products into a single modeling project, using the results from one as the starting point for another. Multiple geometries, including 1D, 2D, and 3D geometries, may also be included in a single file.
Draw geometry directly or import CAD files
GeoStudio provides many tools to define the model domain including coordinate import, geometric item copy-paste, length and angle feedback, region merge and split, and DWG/DXF file import. BUILD3D, GeoStudio’s 3D geometry creation tool, offers a comprehensive suite of sketch features.
Solve multiple analyses simultaneously
GeoStudio runs each analysis solver in parallel, allowing multiple analyses to be solved efficiently on computers with modern, multi-core processors. This saves substantial solve time especially for large 3D analyses.
Interpret results with visualization & graphics
GeoStudio provides powerful visualization tools, including graphing, contour plots, isolines or isosurfaces, animations, interactive data queries and data exports to spreadsheets for further analysis.
GeoStudio’s integrated products enable you to work across a broad range of engineering use cases.
Use GeoStudio products together for an integrated modeling experience.
GeoStudio Integration Workflow
1. Analyse slope stability using piezometric lines
Use SLOPE/W to do a simple global stability analysis using a piezometric line to model pore-water pressures and the water surcharge load of a reservoir.
2. Improve PWP definition with seepage analysis
Use SEEP/W or SEEP3D to do a steady-state seepage analysis and use the pore-water pressures directly in the SLOPE/W stability analysis. This provides a more realistic understanding of the stability due to the PWP conditions.
3. Model external loads with stress-strain analysis
Use SIGMA/W to model load application or removal, and use these stresses directly in the SLOPE/W analysis, along with the finite element pore-water pressures, to determine the safety factor of the earth structure. Alternatively, use the strength reduction analysis capabilities in SIGMA/W to reduce the strength parameters until a global rupture zone forms, which indicates the failure mechanism and the safety factor.
4. See PWP & stress changes with consolidation analysis
Use a coupled stress and pore-water pressure analysis to simultaneously model the effect of loading on the pore-water pressures and stresses. Then use the computed stresses and pore-water pressures directly in a SLOPE/W analysis.
5. Model effects of an earthquake
Use QUAKE/W to consider dynamic loading on the structure from an earthquake. QUAKE/W can begin with the initial stress and PWP profile that has already been computed by SIGMA/W and SEEP/W and then apply earthquake accelerations to model the resulting change in stress. A Newmark analysis can be conducted in SLOPE/W to determine the cumulative displacement along the critical slip surface.
6. Model deformation and structure stability
Use SIGMA/W to redistribute the stresses generated by the earthquake in QUAKE/W, revealing the settlement that will occur in the earth structure. Use the final stresses and pore-water pressures in SLOPE/W to analyze stability at the end of shaking.

GeoStudio 2021.4 continues our journey to a digital twin with greater interoperability between Leapfrog geological modelling and GeoStudio geotechnical analysis.
Integrate 2D centric geotechnical analysis with sections from your 3D geological model with the new multiple section workflow. Capitalise on new data and interpretations made in Leapfrog with dynamic updating of cross-sections and geotechnical analyses in GeoStudio.
Immerse yourself in 3D with the new GeoStudio 3D FLOW. Combine all new CTRAN3D and AIR3D analyses with existing SEEP3D and TEMP3D and corresponding 2D products for even more flexibility in environmental modelling.
Expand the classes of problems that can be analyzed with SIGMA/W using the new Soft Soil Cap material model and improved SANICLAY model.
Multiple Section Workflow
Integrate the 2D centric workflow of a typical geotechnical analysis with multiple geo referenced sections generated from a 3D geological model. BUILD3D delivers the power to import multiple 2D sections in a single click to create multiple numerical 2D analyses which can be dynamically updated and re-solved if the sections have been refreshed due to new data or interpretation.
Interoperability with Leapfrog via Seequent Central
Expanding on the 3D mesh interoperability between GeoStudio and Leapfrog products via the online collaboration tool, Seequent Central, BUILD3D can now connect to Central and import multiple geotechnical 2D sections that have been generated from a Leapfrog geological model and published to Central.
GeoStudio 3D FLOW
GeoStudio 3D FLOW combines the all new CTRAN3D and AIR3D with SEEP3D and TEMP3D. Immerse yourself in 3D simulation of real-world problems in environmental protection, groundwater flow and ground freezing. Simulate a large range of solute and gas transport problems with new CTRAN3D analysis using the familiar workflow and project definition of CTRAN/W. Simulate 3D advective gas and heat transfer by combining AIR3D with CTRAN3D.
SIGMA/W Material Models
The introduction of the Soft Soil Cap material model into SIGMA/W expands the classes of problems that can be analyzed involving normally-consolidated soils.
Improvements to the SANICLAY model mean the failure state is no longer a function of anisotropy.
All new UI\IX improvements – visualise the quality of the fitted surface as a colour coded distance from input data elevations to surface geometry.
New transformation option – automatically adjust the base point to a surface’s minimum extents when of an importeding surface used as a background mesh.
New Task Manager option – review errors generated during meshing and easily identify geometry problems.
