Complete 2D FEM and LEM Geotechnical Analysis Software Suite
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.
Together with PLAXIS LE, take advantage of finite element method and limit equilibrium method capabilities for the design and analysis of soil, rock, and associated structures.
Efficiently Create Models
Benefit from a logical geotechnical workflow. Define everything from complex soil profiles or geological cross sections to structural elements, such as piles, anchors, geotextiles, and prescribed loads and displacements.
Complex 2D Geotechnical Analysis
Use the industry standard of limit equilibrium and finite element software for geotechnical analysis and benefit from innovative and state-of-the-art modeling capabilities. Analyze 2D deformation and stability in geotechnical engineering and rock mechanics. Consider creep, flow-deformation coupling through consolidation, and steady state groundwater or heat flow.
Save Time and Ensure Data Accuracy
Rely on user-friendly software that saves you time with an easy-to-use interface. Strengthen credibility with sound computational procedures. PLAXIS 2D WorkSuite (formerly PLAXIS 2D Suite and SoilVision 2D Suite) includes PLAXIS 2D Ultimate and PLAXIS 2D LE.
Access Fully Coupled Flow-deformation Analysis
Assess the impact of precipitation or seasonal variations of water level on factor of safety through fully coupled flow-deformation analysis
Geotechnical Information Integration
Integrate OpenGround data, topography, and engineered constructions using PLAXIS Designer’s conceptual modeling tools and increase your efficiency in preparing 2D and 3D analysis models.
Conduct Dynamic Analysis
Conduct dynamic analysis to analyze the effects of man-made or natural seismic vibration in soil or structures.
Build More Efficiency
Gain a competitive edge and rely on automated model build-up, results extraction, and reporting with command line and Python scripting.
Flexible Software, Flexible Licensing
You can access PLAXIS software in many ways to suit your project requirements.
A range of capability levels for 2D and 3D analysis are available as Perpetual, Practitioner Subscription and Cloud Subscription Service (CSS) licenses.
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. Arrange a discussion with our PLAXIS sales team now to match the product and license choice against your technical requirements, project duration and budget. Trial licenses available on request.
PLAXIS Subscriptions: Low Cost, Zero Hassle
Pair annual practitioner-named subscription licenses with expert services to ensure you are getting the most value from your software investment.
Affordable Lower Upfront Costs: plus access to expert training ensures a faster return on investment.
