  • Reports cannot be saved in editable formats such as Microsoft Word, Rich Text Format (RTF) or plain text

Teaching materials

Try using our engineering manuals in teaching. Each chapter explains how to solve a particular engineering task using our software. The GEO5 installation also contains demo files with example tasks, which are described step-by-step in the engineering manuals.

* Educational license terms and conditions may slightly differ depending on the region or a dealer.
