GEO5 programs for geotechnical design and analysis
The GEO5 suite of programs is designed to solve various geotechnical problems. The easy-to-use suite consists of individual programs with a unified user-friendly interface. Each program is used to analyse a different geotechnical task, however all modules communicate with each other to form an intergrated package.
Integrated suite of programs
GEO5 is a suite of programs for geotechnical analysis. The software package includes individual programs that are closely linked to each other and run in the same environment. Each program solves a specific geotechnical problem. Besides common geotechnical engineering tasks, the suite also includes highly sophisticated applications for the analysis of tunnels, building damage due to tunnelling, stability of rock slopes etc.
GEO5 consists of wide range of powerful programs based on analytical methods and the Finite Element Method.
Analytical methods of computation (e.g. slope stability, sheeting design) allow users to design and check structures quickly and efficiently. The designed structure may be transferred into the FEM application where the general analysis of the structure is performed using the Finite Element Method. This not only saves designer’s time but also compares two independent solutions, thereby increasing design safety.
The first programs of the GEO family were developed in 1990. Today, Fine Limited offers products through its sales representatives in 20 countries of the world and in 9 language versions. Presently, there are about 1300 companies in 50 countries using software developed by Fine.
