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.
Additions to improve the building of water surfaces, use of CPT data and other measurement tools, including enhanced display options for use in professional reports. Calibrate groundwater analysis results against measured data with these enhanced visualization options.
Mine tailings management and planning tools for volume calculations using the pseudo-3D consolidation method. Efficient analysis of large-strain consolidation 3D scenarios.
Solve dynamic seismic finite-element models. This functionality adds to other standard seismic methods in SVSLOPE like Pseudo-Static Coefficients, Spectral Pseudo-Static, and Newmark.
New Quick start dialog, to quickly access models, license information and online resources.
New option available to contour thickness between the ground surface and a water table.
SVFLUX Materials can be Changed at Different Stages
Different materials objects with different material parameters can now be specified at different construction/excavation stages.
Fix Intersections Operation
Improvements for the Fix Intersections operation in SVDESIGNER when large GIS coordinates are used.
Global Merge Distance Command
Apply Global Merge Distance command improvements: fix flickering of CAD on running operation and proper restoring of object visibility on Undo.
SVFLUX Review Boundary Condition Priority
Flux-review and climate type boundary conditions now take priority over the review type where nodes with multiple boundary conditions of these types are shared.
SVFLUX Tunnel Meshing
Improved mesh quality where Tunnel objects cross through the exact intersection of a surface and a region.
SVFLUX Piezometer Calibration Graphs
Improved symbology in Piezometer Calibration graph.
SVSLOPE Rapid Draw-down Undrained Material Validation
Added a warning prior to solving the model for a rapid draw-down analysis when there are no Undrained parameters specified in the applied materials.
SVSLOPE Export to OBJ
Added option in SVSLOPE Results to export the critical sliding mass base shape to an OBJ mesh file.
SVSLOPE-SEISMIC Total Displacement Output
SVSLOPE-SEISMIC (tech preview) can now output total displacement for contour plots and other results display.
SVSLOPE MPA Location Names
An optional user-entered prefix can now be specified for Multi-Plane Analysis (MPA) location definition names.
SVSLOPE Vertical Side Shear Strength Workflow
Improved the user interface for vertical side shear strength calculation in SVSLOPE.
MVM Slice View Priority
Made the display order of Material Volume Meshes (MVMs) in slice views match the priority used by the solver in SVSLOPE.
SVSLOPE MPA Critical Sliding Mass Export
Added a feature to export critical sliding masses at all Multi-Plane Analysis (MPA) locations (ground surface daylight outline and column base points). This also puts the geometry into the clipboard, such that it can be pasted directly into SVDESIGNER.
SVSLOPE MPA Trials Export
Added a feature to export all trial slip surfaces from all Multi-Plane Analysis (MPA)locations to text files, in addition to the critical slip surface.
SVSLOPE Trial Ellipsoid Export
Trial slip surface ellipsoids can now be copied as meshes and pasted into SVDESIGNER or plain text from SVSLOPE.
SVDESIGNER Borehole Import Improvements
Improved SVDESIGNER borehole system functionality when importing borehole data that doesn't automatically produce valid layer ordering.
Improved License Configuration
Improved License Configuration dialog to simplify license management.
SVSOILS Import With Conflicting Units
Allow import of SVSOILS data into an SVFLUX model when the unit types (Metric vs. Imperial) are different.
