FEM 

This program, based on the finite element method, can model and analyze a wide range of geotechnical problems, including terrain settlement, sheet pile/diaphragm walls, slope stability, excavation analysis. It offers several material models for soils and a variety of structural elements such as walls, anchors, geotextiles or geogrids. The GEO5 FEM is used to compute displacements, internal forces in structural elements, stresses and strains and plastic zones in the soil and other quantities in every construction stage. 
 
With extension modules the program also performs the Tunnel excavation analysis, the steady sate or transient Water Flow analysis, the coupled Consolidation analysis, or the dynamic impact of an Earthquake.
