GEO5 provides analysis of structures directly from field test data (SPT, CPT, DMT, PMT) and avoids or reduces the definition of standard soil parameters. All types of field tests can entered or imported into the Stratigraphy program.
Programs Supporting Field Test Data Import
The main input of geotechnical programs are usually soil parameters, which should be obtained by geological surveys and laboratory tests. When using calculations based on field tests, these data are not required and the basic input is just the data from the tests.
GEO5 software includes several programs which enable direct import of field tests (CPT – cone penetration test, DMT – flat dilatometer test, PMT – pressuremeter test, SPT – standard penetration test).
The Pile CPT program analyzes bearing capacity and settlement of piles according to cone penetration test (CPT).
The Spread Footing CPT program analyzes bearing capacity and settlement of spread foundation according to cone penetration test (CPT), standard penetration test (SPT) and flat dilatometer test (DMT) .
The Spread Footing program analyzes settlement of spread foundation according to flat dilatometer test (DMT).
Program Micropile calculates the modulus of subsoil reaction according to pressuremeter test (PMT) and standard penetration test (SPT).
The Sheeting Check program enables analysis of modulus of subsoil reaction according to pressuremeter test (PMT) and flat dilatometer test (DMT).
Any of the mentioned types of field tests can be entered (or imported) into the Stratigraphy program to generate a geological model of subsoil layers.
Site Investigation enables professional data reporting from the GEO5 Stratigraphy program. It provides many different pre-defined data reports from site investigation results (boreholes, SPTs, CPTs, DPTs etc.) and reports of created geological cross sections from the geological model. Site investigation, an extension module of GEO5 Stratigraphy, will be released in Spring Release of Edition 2018.
