Key Benefits 

Confidently simulate surface and subsurface conditions in 3D

Collaborate seamlessly 

Leverage the power of the Seequent portfolio, including Leapfrog, to share geometry and materials via a seamless cloud-based workflow.

Integrated stability analyses

Easily incorporate finite element results into a limit equilibrium analysis for a comprehensive view of slope stability.   

Analyse complex ground behaviour

Use the comprehensive constitutive model library for soil and rock, in all your stability, groundwater flow, and stress-strain analyses.

One model, multiple analyses

Explore complex geotechnical processes using a number of analyses, geometries, and dimensions in a single project file. 

Insights through visualisation 

Graphing and visualisation tools to help you interpret results, compare them to the physical system, and gain deep insights into the problem at hand. 

Start simple, add complexity 

Explore geotechnical systems with multi-analysis and multi-geometry capabilities, and a simple-to-complex iterative workflow to unlock knowledge.

GeoStudio 3D 

GeoStudio 3D offers the foundational capability to perform Limit Equilibrium slope stability analysis using SLOPE3D for soil and rock for problems that do not require the consideration of groundwater flow, finite element stresses or pore water pressures, or dynamic stresses.

GeoStudio 3D  includes the following:

SLOPE3D

SLOPE3D expands on limit equilibrium capabilities by offering a practical yet sophisticated approach for capturing 3D slope failure mechanisms in both soil and rock, given a variety of slip surface shapes, pore water pressure conditions and soil properties.

GeoStudio 3D Advanced 

GeoStudio 3D Advanced provides the ability to simulate steady-state and transient groundwater flow in both saturated and unsaturated soil and rock. It can be used to analyse geotechnical engineering challenges across the value chain and to analyse conditions using pore water pressures directly in the 3D stability analysis.

GeoStudio 3D Advanced  includes the following:

SEEP3D

SEEP3D is a powerful finite element software product for modelling 3D groundwater flow in porous media. SEEP3D can model simple saturated steady-state problems or sophisticated saturated / unsaturated transient analyses using the same comprehensive set of material models and boundary conditions as SEEP/W.
