TNO DIANA BV is the exclusive distributor for Fine GEO5 Analytical Package in the Benelux and France.
Analytical methods of computation allow users to design and check geotechnical structures quickly and with high efficiency. GEO5 geotechnical analytical package is offered as a complement to DIANA software, which is based on the finite element method. Using both tools allows increasing design safety by comparing two independent solutions.
The GEO5 analytical package is designed to solve various geotechnical problems and design checks including Eurocode7. The powerful and easy-to-use package consists of individual programs with a consistent graphical interface. Each program is used to analyze a different geotechnical task but all modules communicate with each other in order to form the integrated package. GEO5 suite covers the following geotechnical problems:
- Foundation Design
- Sheet piling design
- Retaining Wall Design
- Stability Analysis
- Settlement analyses
- Digital Model of Terrain (DTM)
Fine Ltd. has been developing GEO5 since 1989. It is currently used by more than 1500 users in 50 countries over the world.
An important feature of the GEO5 programs is that they conform to standards and practices in many countries. They are based on general and well known theories; only the form of the final check depends on the individual standard and country. All GEO applications allow users to check structures according to the theory of limit states and also the theory of safety factors. Any reduction factors, analysis coefficients etc. may be set by the user. That way, he/she is able to design a structure according to Eurocodes or British, American, Australian, Indian and other national standards within one module. Design of concrete structures is performed according to standards EC2, PN, BS, IS, ACI etc.
