The PLAXIS product team has unveiled PLAXIS 3D CONNECT Edition V20 is a finite element package intended for three-dimensional analysis of deformation and stability in geotechnical engineering. It is equipped with features to deal with various aspects of complex geotechnical structures and construction processes .
PLAXIS 3D CE V20.00.00 Release notes – Release: August 2019
New and improved features
Scripting Reference manual as a Jupyter notebook
– Easily learn Python-based remote scripting in PLAXIS with the new Scripting Reference manual. Sample scripts for each of the commands in PLAXIS 2D and 3D are offered in a Jupyter notebook. These samples can be run live in the software to see and understand what happens. You can also edit and rerun the samples and see the effect of your changes, offering a great way of learning-by-doing.
– Mesh generator
– Scripting Soiltest
– Various issues
The PLAXIS 2D and 3D CONNECT Edition now has a Scripting reference manual, learn-by-doing by changing and running live script examples.
PLAXIS Geotechnical Finite Element Analysis Software
Conquer any geotechnical project with confidence using PLAXIS. Design and perform advanced finite element analysis of soil and rock deformation and stability, as well as soil structure interaction and groundwater and heat flow. You will have what it takes to handle advanced constitutive models for the simulation of the nonlinear and time-dependent behavior of soils. Apply hydrostatic and nonhydrostatic pore pressures, model structures and the interaction between the structures and the soil, and take on projects of all types such as excavations, foundations, embankments, tunnels, mines, dredging, and more.
PLAXIS 3D is a powerful and user friendly finite element package intended for three-dimensional analysis of deformation and stability in geotechnical engineering and rock mechanics. PLAXIS is used worldwide by top engineering companies and institutions in the civil and geotechnical engineering industry. Applications range from excavations, embankments and foundations to tunnelling, mining and reservoir geomechanics.
PLAXIS 3D has advanced features to tackle modelling challenges in the most complex geotechnical projects, that cannot be solved with PLAXIS 2D.
Finite element modelling in full 3D has never been easier with a range of CAD-like drawing tools and extrude, intersect, combine and array operations. It’s almost like sculpting.
In this showreel, we display some models of dams and embankments made in PLAXIS 3D.
