Bentley enhances geoenvironmental product portfolio

Philadelphia, US: Bentley Systems, Inc., announced innovative additions and enhancements to its growing line of geotechnical and geoenvironmental products for sustaining infrastructure during Be Together: The Bentley User Conference. With the release of its new GeoStructural offerings, Bentley brought a new category of software tools to surface and subsurface project work. 
According to the company’s press statement, the new software paves the way for the inclusion of geotechnical and geoenvironmental considerations in integrated project workflows and decision making – an advancement due given the crucial importance of subsurface conditions to the sustainability of all infrastructure. Bentley also announced innovative enhancements to its gINT software for subsurface projects that affords gINT users the “V8i advantage,” including geospatial context for geotechnical data management within ProjectWise. The V8i advantage enables Bentley and its users to work smarter together by providing intuitive modelling, immersive design, intrinsic 3D and incredible performance, along with interoperability that supports software choice, data reuse and Bentley’s commitment to compatibility across all of its multidisciplinary applications.
Salvatore Caronna, Bentley’s solutions executive for Environmental Engineering, said, “Geostructural engineering applies geotechnical data to the design and analysis of surface and subsurface structures. Bentley’s new GeoStructural software provides our users with a complete set of robust applications that empower them to include geotechnical information in the design and analysis of applicable structures – everything from piles and footings to walls and tunnels.”
Bentley’s GeoStructural Analysis and Advanced GeoStructural Analysis products provide interchangeable data for the lifecycle of infrastructure. Their comprehensive scope includes capabilities for the design and analysis of walls, slope stability, sheeting, piling, footings, abutments, soil pressures, settlement, as well as finite element analysis and tunnelling and ground analysis.
GeoStructural Analysis includes the following modules: Cantilever Wall, Gabion Wall, Gravity Wall, Masonry Wall, Prefab Wall, Nailed Slopes, Sheeting Design, Sheeting Check, Slope Stability, Spread Footing, Abutment, Earth Pressures, Micropile, Pile CPT, Piles, Rock Stability, Settlement, and DXF Export. Bentley’s Advanced GeoStructural Analysis offering adds FEM, Tunnel, and Ground Loss modules.
