Geotechnical feedback

Please leave feedback and development suggestions for the Oasys Geo programs or vote on existing items – thanks for your input!

Note that the Knowledge Base includes summarized development plans.

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".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

  3. Direct output of equivalent reaction stiffnesses for wall elements

    See also "Direct output of equivalent subgrade reaction stiffnesses". Pdisp allows the input of horizontal loading on a vertical plane. Equivalent subgrade reaction stiffnesses (reaction springs) for wall elements could be obtained from applied horizontal pressure and resulting movements.

  4. Changing slope angle interactively on graphical input

    At present , we need to change coordinates of strata to change slope section inclination angle , it will be great if we can change slope angle on screen directly. This will be useful for mining engineering problems where height of the bench remains constaant but user want to change slope angle.

  9. Calculate ground movements above polygon excavation surface level

    Currently immediately above the surface level of an excavation the calculated ground movement = 0mm. It would be helpful to have the ground movements calculated extend above the top of the polygon excavation

  10. 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.

  11. 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…

  14. 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?

  15. Graphical output shall show all wall dimensions on screen

    Hi , currently graphical output is not showing wall dimensions, its good if it shows all dimensions and can be exportable to auto cad program

  16. 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.

  18. 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).
