Powerful Geotechnical Analysis Software. LimitState:GEO provides unique geotechnical analysis capabilities to rapidly determine the critical failure mechanism and margin of safety for any problem.

Flexible Modelling

Geotechnical software to tackle any ultimate limit state analysis or design problem involving slope stability, bearing capacity, walls, foundations, reinforced soil, or complex combined systems.

Unique Optimization Technology

Rapidly identify critical geotechnical failure mechanisms, including those that traditional methods often miss.

A Wide Range Of Geotechnical Analysis Applications

From slope stability to deep excavations, LimitState:GEO geotechnical software can handle design and analysis problems of any geometry and with any loading conditions. There’s no need to resort to application specific hand calculations, spreadsheets or software applications that attempt to automate these.

Combine different geotechnical features into the same model and be confident that the critical failure mechanism is being identified, whether that involves slope stability, bearing capacity, structural overturning or a mixture of all these and more. Providing quick, accurate results gives the opportunity for deeper understanding of the problem; leading to better, more refined solutions.

Slope Stability

Unlike the traditional \’method of slices\’, there is no need to specify a solution type or entry/exit points. It is easy to include other slope stability features and directly identify the critical slip surface – even if non-circular.

Cantilever Walls

LimitState:GEO is as straightforward to use as conventional Limit Equilibrium methods, but can model global soil failure, retaining wall stability, bending failure, or any combination of these.

Reinforced Soil

LimitState:GEO models 1D and 2D soil reinforcement and interaction in a fully general way, using the same principles as conventional analysis, but with the capability to identify complex failure modes.

Footings / Foundations

LimitState:GEO goes beyond conventional bearing capacity formulae to provide a direct means of establishing bearing capacity for complex foundation geometries, ground profiles and loading conditions.

Seismic Loading

LimitState:GEO allows application of pseudo static accelerations to any problem. Fixed accelerations can be applied, or the acceleration required to trigger instability can be found in a few simple steps.

Gabion Walls

LimitState:GEO’s gabion wizard allows quick definition of gabion wall problem geometry. The software simultaneously checks both external and internal wall stability (gabion sliding, rotation or crushing).

Gravity Retaining Walls

LimitState:GEO is as easy to use as conventional Limit Equilibrium methods, but can directly handle complex geometries and loading conditions without the need for ‘correction’ factors.

Deep Excavations

LimitState:GEO can model supported and unsupported excavations, taking account of the effects of surface surcharges. Identify a wide range of failure mechanisms, including base heave and lateral instability.
