How much can it deform?

seepage and FEM

Seepage analysis module is capable of performing transient and static seepage analyses for a profile with isotropic or anisotropic, homogeneous or non-homogeneous, and saturated or unsaturated soils.  

FEM module not only has been embedded into modules of slope-stability analysis, shoring design, and tunnel-lining design to enhance their analyses but also can be used as an individual tool for more broad purposes, such as settlement analyses.

confined seepage analysis

Seepage analysis module is capable of performing transient and static seepage analysis.

free surface seepage analysis

Results of a calculation including equipotential lines and flow lines can be presented.

plane strain fem

Unlike other FEM software, the 2-D FEM module in Visual Slope is very easy to use

axisymmetric fem

Settlement analysis for cylindrical storage, or even stress analysis for car pistons
