Few structures programs have impressed me in recent years.
This time I was struck by one of the AdSense ads on the blog of Home, Although I am very foolish to click as we are all who We monetized our blogs by that way, I have found a software that with everything and my custom of not believing in the Alkazeltzer has caught my attention.
I mean Geo5, a software driven by FineSoftware, Taking advantage of the tranquility of this Sunday let's take a look at what has this technology can make it stand out among other applications:
Orientation to geotechnics
Geo5 and its range of programs are geared towards the solution of geotechnical problems, which makes it different from those popularized by EaglePoint, Bentley and AutoDesk, Whose emphasis is oriented to the design of buildings and terrestrial development, although they do other things as well.
So in this, Geo5 takes credit for being in a field, although explored by the other platforms, the price will always be competitive for going to the point of what a Civil Engineer or Geologist requires. Each application has the price per license indicated on the right, this is a healthy habit that leads to sales; many people associate the lack of prices with exorbitant prices.
Although the tools of Geo5 are several, their integrality is manifested in the fact that a design can be sent from one program to another; For the case, a retaining wall can be analyzed from the slope from one application, but then the shaping of the paw can be sent to another application once the base width is defined.In addition, there are injected screen wall applications and also to design structures using the finite element method (MEF), both in tunnels and other geotechnical solutions.
There are also several applications for the design of foundation elements, such as beams, piles, micropiles, foundation slabs and footings.
Undoubtedly, this tool seems to be a good solution for a company dedicated to geotechnical consulting in its different areas of expertise. The program includes analysis of the stability of slopes, rock slopes and settlement of surfaces due to the construction of tunnels, this includes simulation of a digital terrain model (DTM), both in tunnels and for other geotechnical solutions.
About the software.
Geo5 is produced by FINE, as mentioned, near 1,500 companies and professionals use their technology, including ARUP, I remember well this mega company because it won the BE Awards with the Water Cube that we all saw in the Olympic Games.
I downloaded it, the demo version weighs more than 80 MB and has almost all the features except save or print projects, but has no limitations in the analysis or data entry.
The interface design is quite clean, keeping a panel on the right with "almost everything" that is needed within a running routine. The variety of languages is wide, and of course Spanish, including training with video tutorials and manuals completely in Spanish.
This tool is based on an old application that was born from the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Prague, with a graphical interface from Windows 3.1. You now have a very robust environment that displays easy-to-interpret drawings and nomenclatures that engineers are used to seeing.
Then the reports are a complete memory, in which you can customize the company's data and users.
Unlike the aids that programs usually have, oriented to the screens and functionalities of the program, Geo5 has theoretical material that supports the routines in execution. It includes both standards and physical-mathematical calculation processes.
Although the program originates in Czechoslovakia, it complies with international and, of course, European regulations.
