PLAXIS is the leading geotechnical finite element software developed specifically for deformation analysis of soils and rock. Renowned for ease of use and accuracy, it will help you optimise your designs more effectively than applying traditional conservative calculation methods.
Geotechnical applications often require advanced constitutive models for the simulation of the non linear, time dependent and anisotropic behaviour of soils and rock. In addition to traditional Mohr-Coulomb and linear elastic materials, further models have specifically been developed with parameters that can be readily determined using standard soil testing methodologies. Pore pressures in the soil can be accurately captured for both simple hydrostatic, water-table derived problems as well as more complex situations where artesian conditions, ground water flow and soil excavation drive the pore water pressures.
PLAXIS has 2D and 3D versions, with optional dynamics, transient ground water flow and thermal add-on modules available separately or as a suite. There is also a specialist program, PLAXIS MoDeTo for designing offshore monopile foundations.
Developed by Bentley Systems, the software includes geometry creation tools and automated settings to allow geotechnical problems to be analysed efficiently & accurately with the minimum of training.
You can access PLAXIS software in many ways to suit your project requirements and budget:
- Perpetual Licenses
- Floating Pre-Paid Annual Leases (PPA)
- Virtuosity Practitioner Licenses
- Cloud Subscription Services (CSS)
These options give you the flexibility to either make a long term investment in PLAXIS, try the software for 12 months with complementary training and mentoring, or purchase short-term capability for limited-duration projects and peak workload situations on a pay-as-you-go basis.
In all cases, the licenses include our technical support services and the latest software versions.
Which Option is Best for You?
This depends entirely on your circumstances. Contact our PLAXIS sales team now to match the product range against your technical requirements, find out prices and discuss which type of license option is right for you.
