GEOTEC Office Package

GEOTEC Office is a package for geotechnical and design engineering. The package contains the following programs and tools:
Analysis of Piled raft of Burj Khalifa in Dubai by the program ELPLA


ELPLA (ELASTIC PLATE) is a powerful tool for analyzing piled-raft foundations. ELPLA has models for analyzing single pile, pile groups, piled raft foundations. ELPLA can analyze a foundation of arbitrary shape with a real subsoil model. The mathematical solution of the raft is based on the finite element method. The program can analyze different types of subsoil models, e.g. the three-dimensional Continuum model that considers any number of irregular layers. A good advantage of this program is the capability to handle the three analyses of flexible, elastic, and rigid foundations. In addition, the mesh of the rigid and flexible foundations can be constructed to be analogous to the finite element mesh of the elastic foundation. Therefore, the three analyses can be compared easily and correctly. ELPLA can also be used to represent the effect of external loads, neighboring foundations, tunneling, and the influence of the temperature difference on the raft.


BOHR is a program for drawing borehole logging of soil layers by different symbols according to the German specification code DIN 4023.
Pore water pressure with time for multi-layered clayey soil


Quick ELPLA is a program for analyzing different problems in geotechnical engineering such as stresses, strain, displacements in soil, consolidation settlement, degree of consolidation, time-settlement curve, displacement of the rigid raft, consolidation of the rigid raft, settlement of footing groups. In addition, it can analyze different types of deep foundation problems such as analysis of single pile, single barrette, piled raft, barrette raft, Sheet pile wall; determine the bearing capacity and settlement of single pile or pile wall; obtain stress coefficient according to GEDDES.
