Geological Model with Horizontal Layers

Previous example Next example

We will create a geological model with horizontal layers according to the following picture.

First, we enter a field test (type borehole) in the "Field Tests" frame - the name BH 1, coordinates [x; y; z] - [5; 5; on terrain], thickness of layers [2; 1; 3].

Selection of field test type

Borehole input

The soils [blue, green, brown] can be added directly in the window "layers of borehole" or in the "Soils" frame. The easiest way is to copy all soils from the tests using the "Adopt from field tests" button. The list of soils used in tests is created.

Adding soils according to tests

The soil profile and borehole are created automatically from the test (type borehole). After switching to the "Geological model" frame, the required model is generated (if the manual generation is selected in the "Settings" frame, it is necessary to use the button "Generate").

Generated model

For a clearer view, it is appropriate to enter a cross section in the frame "Output Sections" - points [x; y] - [0; 5], [20; 5].

Visualisation of the model using Cross section

It is necessary to change the drawing settings for correct visualization of cross section in the "Geological Model" frame.
