In the latest GeoStudio version, you’ll notice improvements to speed up your geotechnical 3D workflow. Key features and functionality are implemented to improve your 3D modelling experience and to enhance your slope stability analysis.
3D geometry creation application embedded
The 3D geometry creation application is now embedded in the main GeoStudio window, bringing 3D modelling in GeoStudio closer to the 2D experience. Undo and redo commands are now available to save time while working with 3D geometries.
Import Leapfrog Geological Model Volumes
You can now import Leapfrog Geological Model Volumes from Seequent Central into a 3D geometry, and assign materials to existing parametric geometry objects. This workflow makes it easy to map complex geologies to analysis geometry, removing the need to create complex parametric surfaces to capture stratigraphic boundaries.
Define piezometric surfaces with imported background mesh
Piezometric surfaces can also be imported into 3D geometries using the Import Background Mesh command. An imported background mesh representing the Piezometric surface can be used to define the initial pore water pressure conditions in a 3D seepage analysis.
Cuckoo Search method for circular slips
The Cuckoo Search method is available to search for circular slip surfaces. This search method provides an unbiased attempt at locating the critical slip surface and is beneficial for identifying the critical mode of failure in complex geology or large domains. This search method can also be used to identify portions of the domain where additional analysis may be required.
Updated Compound Strength material model
Updates to the Compound Strength material model provide a more straightforward material definition for jointed rock mass. The inputs include the dip angle and two ranges around the dip in which the strength is linearly interpolated between the joint and intact material.
GeoStudio now supports three licensing types:
A License System selection tool allows users to select the desired License System or to easily move from one License System to another.
BUILD3D Fundamentals course
Those looking to create 3D geometries and analyses in GeoStudio can access the new BUILD3D course available in the Seequent learning portal. This course covers the methods for importing various geometry file types, creating and modifying 3D geometry items, defining the 3D mesh, and interpreting 3D results.
Slope Stability Verification Manual
A new Slope Stability Verification Manual is available. This document comprises dozens of analyses testing various scenarios and compares the simulated results with published studies and analytical solutions.
Updated Compound FLOW example
The updated Compound Strength example file demonstrates the new functionality of this material model.
New 3D FLOW example
The new 3D FLOW example simulates chemical volatilization of trichloroethylene from a shallow contaminated groundwater table into cracks in the basement of an overlying 3D building.
