    Knowledge-Based Saturated/Unsaturated Soil Property Database

SVSOILS

SVSOILS™ is the world’s premier product for estimating the hydraulic properties for flow modeling in unsaturated soils. Our searchable database contains over 40,000 soils with over 50% containing a minimum of a soil-water characteristic curve and provides numerous theoretical methods of estimating the soil-water characteristic curve (SWCC) or unsaturated hydraulic conductivity curve. Methods for managing consolidation, shear strength, triaxial, thermal, and fate and transport properties are also present. Import soils from gINT to enhance your digital workflow.

Capabilities
  • Application for estimating soil properties

    • Premier and unique application for the estimation of unsaturated soils' behavior in seepage modeling. Methods for managing consolidation, shear strength, triaxial, thermal, and fate and transport properties are also present.
  • Automatically classify soils

    • Automatic soil classification by USCS or USDA methods.
  • Calculate volume-mass properties

    • Calculate volume-mass properties of an air-water-soil mixture using any three measured properties.
  • Data mining

    • Our searchable database contains over 40,000 soils with over 50% containing a minimum of a soil-water characteristic curve. Estimate unsaturated soil properties through data mining.
  • Easy-to-use redesigned interface

    • Redesigned simple user interface: Increased workflow efficiency with powerful data mining/searching capabilities.
  • Digital workflow

    • Import data from gINT and export material parameters to analysis software to enhance your digital workflow.
  • Manage model constitutive data for saturated/unsaturated flow

    • Management of modeling constitutive data for saturated/unsaturated flow, shear strength, compressibility, consolidation, thermal, pore-air flow, and fate and transport material properties.
  • Parameter determination methods

    • Theoretical estimations of:
      - soil-water characteristic curve by nine methods
      - saturated and unsaturated hydraulic conductivities
      - the Fredlund & Wilson provides a reliable method to estimate the soil-water characteristic curve for sands, silts, and clays
