PLAXIS 3D

Finite element package for 3D analysis in geotechnical engineering

TERRASOL is Plaxis agent for France and french-speaking countries. If you are working in other countries, please contact Plaxis sales department.

PLAXIS 3D 2013 is a finite element package intended for three-dimensional analysis of deformation and stability in geotechnical engineering.
PLAXIS 3D is equipped with features to deal with various aspects of complex geotechnical structures and construction processes. Geotechnical applications require advanced constitutive models for the simulation of the non-linear, time-dependent and anisotropic behaviour of soils and/or rock.

In addition, since soil is a multi-phase material, special procedures are required to deal with hydrostatic and non-hydrostatic pore pressures in the soil. Although the modelling of the soil itself is an important issue, many projects involve the modelling of structures and the interaction between the structures and the soil.
