Although GEO5 includes specialized programs for settlement and consolidation analysis, settlement of a structure can be analyzed in all programs for foundation analysis.
Programs for Settlement Analysis
The Settlement program is designated for analysis of terrain settlement from surcharge or under constructed embankment. It also enables calculation of consolidation using analytical method (Terzhagi).
Settlement and rotation of a shallow foundation is analyzed in the Spread Footing program.
The Ground Loss program is designated for analysis of terrain settlement and risks of building damage above a constructed tunnel.
