2D/3D Freeze/Thaw, Fate and Transport, Pore-Air and Water Flow


SVENVIRO offers geo-environmental analysis applications. These applications are well-suited for solving complex flow and contaminant transport models, coupled flow and freeze/thaw analysis, and coupled flow, thermal, and pore-air flow models. The analysis includes a comprehensive climatic interface. SVENVIRO uses the power of the FlexPDE® finite element solution engine. FlexPDE® provides the benefits of a general finite element solver, fully automatic mesh generation and mesh refinement in 1D, 2D, and 3D models. 
  • Analyze complex water, heat, and pore-air flow models considering climate

    • Analyze complex groundwater, heat-flow, and pore-air flow modeling. Advanced climate boundary conditions, including actual evaporation, transpiration, snow, thermosyphons, and energy balance, incorporate weather station data.
  • Fully automatic mesh generation and refinement

    • Fully-automatic mesh generation and mesh refinement.
  • Fully integrated 1D/ 2D/ 3D contaminant transport software

    • Fully-integrated 1D/2D/3D contaminant transport software allows modeling of diffusion, advection, absorption, and biological and radioactive decay. Full coupling with saturated and unsaturated flow is possible.
  • Model phase changes

    • Modeling of phase change between unfrozen and frozen states.
  • Quickly create effective models

    • Featuring a familiar user interface with easy-to-understand icons and functions. The software features behave exactly how you would expect with a short learning curve. You will be able to start modeling right away.
  • Simulate heat conduction and convection

    • Simulate heat conduction and convection in saturated and unsaturated soils.
  • Solve groundwater seepage, thermal or pore-air flow processes

    • The processes of groundwater flow, frozen or unfrozen heat flow, and pore-air flow can be solved independently or as coupled processes in any combination. This is typically referred to as THA coupling. Thermal modeling simulates the phase change between frozen and unfrozen states and can model conductive or coupled convective processes.
  • Solve in Various Dimensions

    • Utilize 1D, 2D, 3D, plan, and axisymmetric analysis. Create geometrically complex digital twin 3D models with the SVDESIGNER™ conceptual model builder. Create 3D models from triangulated surfaces (TINS). Implement multiple 3D model-building methodologies (extrusions, 2D cross-section stitching, 3D layer cake, block models, or material volume method).
