PLAXIS has evolved from a research project at TU Delft to a successful and world-renowned software product that has become the standard in geotechnical analysis and design over the last 30 years.

In 2022, PLAXIS was awarded the Outstanding Innovator Award by the International Society for Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ISSMGE). This award is a recognition of the innovation that the PLAXIS team has brought forward ever since its early days, advancing the geotechnical engineering profession. As we celebrate 30 remarkable years of PLAXIS, it’s not just a moment to reflect on our past achievements but an opportunity to envision what the future may hold.
