Seequent expands solutions portfolio with GEOSLOPE’s geotechnical analysis software GeoStudio

Combined geoscience tech solutions improve overall engineering and design workflows to help engineers solve earth, environment and energy challenges

CHRISTCHURCH, New Zealand, 4 October 2019 - Seequent, a world leader in the development of geoscience analysis, modelling, and collaborative technologies, today announced that GEOSLOPE – a Canadian-based company that creates integrated, geotechnical analysis software – has become part of Seequent, offering additional innovative geoscience technology solutions.

GEOSLOPE is recognized worldwide by geotechnical engineers who use the GeoStudio suite for design, analysis, and decision making. The GeoStudio suite includes products for modelling slope stability, deformation, heat transfer and groundwater flow in soil and rock. The products are used in over 100 countries for analysing infrastructure projects including dams and levees, reinforced walls and slopes, open pit mines, and transportation.

Shaun Maloney, Chief Executive of Seequent, says: “We welcome the GEOSLOPE team to the Seequent family. Together, we are better equipped to deliver on our commitment to help mitigate and solve some of the world’s major civil, environmental and energy challenges.”

GEOSLOPE’S President, Paul Grunau, says: “Over the years, we have invested in the long-term growth of the company to develop a set of world-class solutions for geotechnical engineers. Joining Seequent presents the opportunity for greater integration of geotechnical analysis into the overall engineering and design workflow, thereby enabling our customers to more effectively analyse their problems and deliver better outcomes.”

Seequent’s General Manager, Civil & Environmental, Daniel Wallace, says: “Seequent and GEOSLOPE share a common vision with customers and stakeholders to make better decisions about our infrastructure assets and the natural environment we live in and build on. We’re excited to continue working as one team on that shared vision that brought us together.”

The GEOSLOPE team will continue to be led by Paul Grunau and will maintain its presence in Calgary.

GEOSLOPE Introduces Two New Products to the GeoStudio Suite: SEEP3D and BUILD3D

Calgary, Canada (June 11, 2019) – GEOSLOPE International Ltd., a leading developer of geo-engineering software, announced the release of two new products today: SEEP3D and BUILD3D. These products provide two powerful new toolsets that can be easily integrated with GEOSLOPE’s GeoStudio suite.

“We are very excited to show our clients SEEP3D and BUILD3D,” said Paul Grunau, President of GEOSLOPE. “These new products integrate 3D modeling directly into the 2D workflow, increasing modeling speed and bringing the power of 3D analysis to all.”

SEEP3D unlocks the power of 3D groundwater flow analysis, while providing the same accessible project flow and comprehensive set of boundary conditions and material properties as SEEP/W. SEEP3D extends the functionality of SEEP/W to model a greater range of groundwater problems, including well-spacing patterns, natural slope hydrogeology, dam reservoir drawdown, and levee performance in response to flood events.

BUILD3D is a revolutionary software tool for constructing 3D analysis-ready geometries. It seamlessly integrates with the GeoStudio product suite as it may be added onto any existing 3D analysis product license, greatly expanding the user’s geometry creation capabilities. The feature-based design of BUILD3D allows for the quick creation and modification of a model at any point in its design history, providing huge time-savings. A suite of intuitive sketch tools and powerful Boolean operations are available in BUILD3D, including sketch, extrude, sweep, intersect, cut, merge, and imprint. BUILD3D generates a clean mesh with a single click of the button, removing the need to spend hours on manual mesh adjustment, and provides both import and export capabilities for CAD files.

Visit the SEEP3D page today to access the free public beta of SEEP3D and BUILD3D.
