SOILVISION CONNECT Edition V10 Update 4 (10.04.00.135) contains the following improvements and updates compared to SOILVISION CONNECT Edition V10 Update 3 (10.03.00.92):
Learn more about other recent improvements to the SOILVISION products on the SOILVISION Recent Improvements wiki page of Bentley Communities. SOILVISION products include SVDESIGNER, SVSOILS, SVSLOPE, SVFLUX, SVSOLID, and SVENVIRO.
For mining applications, specify spatially a blast zone and corresponding material strength reduction curve without adding complexity to your 3D model geometry definition.
Additional SVSLOPE LEM objects added to the existing Geometry Export allowing quicker model setup for performing FEM safety analysis or sharing model geometry for other FEM analysis types. Take sections directly from SVDESIGNER 3D conceptual designs to PLAXIS 2D analysis.
Re-design of the SOILVISION Manager adds more flexibility of project and model organization and material definitions can be shared and linked from other model files or the SVSOILS database.
External Water Surface Visualization Enhancement for SVDESIGNER and SVSLOPE
A dedicated display style can be chosen the display of external water surfaces, such as ponds, lakes, and rivers, giving the water a translucent reflective look enhancing the visualization for reports and presentations.
User-Defined Surface Boundary Shapes
3D models previously required application of surface boundary conditions to Regions where regions are used to distinguish material separation in the SOILVISION layer-block modeling paradigm. Now a user-defined boundary shape can be specified in plan view that is independent of the region definitions and can easy span multiple regions. This feature delivers significant time savings in 3D model setup and adds to the other boundary condition specification improvements from the previous Update 3 release.
Enhanced Model Volume and Sliding Mass Output
The output of model volumes and the calculated sliding mass has been enhanced for 3D mesh formats.
