How can we improve Oasys geotechnical software?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

      • Ability to input both compression and tension loads in the same file

        It is currently not possible to apply both tensile and compressive loads in the same file to compare against the calculated resistances. The programme subtracts the tensile loads which are applied as negative loads from the compressive loads which are positive instead of recognising them as separate loads.

        • Multiprocessing and result plotting improvements

          Add parallel processing capability to SIREN so that two, four or eight time histories can be run in parallel (depending on processor capabilities) rather than sequentially. (NB: This capability is currently a feature of Deepsoil).

          Consider adding more than one soil profile for analysis to an input file, as we typically run three versions of a soil profile to consider uncertainty in the input stiffness profile (upper, lower bounds and best estimate). The same time histories are run through each profile.

          With typically three stiffness profiles considered per soil profile, and 7-pairs of records (14 No.) per profile, and often…

          • Pile to be able to handle c-phi soils

            Pile currently treats soils in two broad catergories: drained and undrained, the drained soils have only an angle of friction and the undrained only the undrained cohesion. It would be nice if c-phi soils (e.g sandy clays, clayey sands) can also be considered.

                • Minimum equivalent fluid pressure

                  A new update allows you to edit the MEFP at each stage and in each material. However, it defaults to y0=0 at each stage and therefore is not applied unless you go through each stage and change this. Please can the MEFP default to the top node level unless specified otherwise?

                    • Limit on tension in props

                      Please can you allow a limit to be set to prevent props going into tension? Currently a multi-propped wall with no embedment doesn't fail as the top prop goes into tension.

                      • Extend Pile to model embedded retaining walls as a rectangular panel

                        Where embedded pile retaining walls carry axial loads, it is common practice to analyse the section as a rectangular panel rather than individual circular piles (with a reduced end bearing co-efficient akin to a deep strip footing).

                        To date, we have achieved this by modelling an under-ream pile with different shaft and base diameters. However, it would be simpler and clearer if Pile could analyse a rectangular section. This would also be beneficial for calculation of axial resistance for diaphragm wall panels.

                        Refer to method of Hov et al from 2010 DFI Conference (attached).

                                • Superimpose the layer name on the FREW graphical output

                                  Presently in the FREW graphical output each layer is labelled with a number. If the graph is printed/copied on a report there is no way for the reader to understand which geomaterial the model refers to withouth having access to the materials properties table. Superimposing the name given by the user on the graph improves legibility.
