    2D/3D Finite Element Groundwater Seepage

SVFLUX

SVFLUX is finite element software that allows modeling of groundwater seepage in unsaturated or saturated soils and rock. Offered as a comprehensive 1D, 2D, and 3D program for calculating steady-state and transient-state flow as well as evaporation from the ground surface. This feature is a leading option for geotechnical and hydrogeological analysis. This application is used for solutions involving calculation of pore-water pressures for slope stability, tailings dams, earth dams, reservoirs, unsaturated cover systems, and groundwater flow in embankments. 
Capabilities
  • Analyze saturated or unsaturated soils

    • Provide stable analysis of groundwater flow in saturated or unsaturated soils. Consider staged construction and excavation modeling scenarios.
  • Coupled consolidation analysis

    • Couple with SVSOLID™ to solve small and large-strain consolidation
  • Creation of geometry

    • 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).
  • Create models quickly

    • Featuring a familiar user interface with easy-to-understand icons and functions. The software features behave exactly like how you would expect with a short learning curve. You will be able to start modeling right away.
  • Generate pore-water pressures for slope stability 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.
  • Model boundary conditions in steady-state or transient models

    • Head, flux, climatic, and cauchy boundary conditions are available in steady-state or transient models. Boundary condition data can be entered as tabled values. Advanced Fredlund-Wilson-Penman climatic boundary condition calculates the actual evaporation based on weather station data.
  • Quad/Triangular/Tetrahedral meshing support

    • This solution allows models of higher complexity to be produced from various 2D and 3D data sources.
  • Parameter determination methods

    • This application has numerous different soil-water characteristic curve (SWCC) fitting methods, saturated hydraulic conductivity estimation methods, and unsaturated hydraulic conductivity estimation methods. Develop parameters in SVSOILS or obtain them by searching through the database of 40,000+ soils.
