PREFACE

PREFACE

PLAXIS 2D is a two-dimensional finite element program, developed for the analysis of
deformation, stability and groundwater flow in geotechnical engineering.
It is a part of the PLAXIS product range, a suite of finite element programs that is used
worldwide for geotechnical engineering and design.
The development of PLAXIS began in 1987 at Delft University of Technology as an
initiative of the Dutch Ministry of Public Works and Water Management (Rijkswaterstaat).
The initial purpose was to develop an easy-to-use 2D finite element code for the analysis
of river embankments on the soft soils of the lowlands of Holland. In subsequent years,
PLAXIS was extended to cover most other areas of geotechnical engineering. Because
of continuously growing activities, the PLAXIS company (Plaxis bv) was formed in 1993.
In 1998, the first PLAXIS 2D for Windows was released. In the meantime a calculation
kernel for 3D finite element calculations was developed which resulted in the release of
the 3DTunnel program in 2001. 3DFoundation was the second three-dimensional
PLAXIS program, and was developed in cooperation with TNO. The 3DFoundation
program was released in 2004. However, in neither 3DTunnel nor 3DFoundation it is
possible to define arbitrary 3D geometries, because of their geometrical limitations.
PLAXIS 3D is a full three-dimensional PLAXIS program which combines an easy-to-use
interface with full 3D modelling facilities. The PLAXIS 3D program was released in 2010.
Goals and objectives: PLAXIS is intended to provide a tool for practical analysis to be
used by geotechnical engineers who are not necessarily numerical specialists. Quite
often practising engineers consider non-linear finite element computations cumbersome
and time-consuming. The PLAXIS research and development team has addressed this
issue by designing robust and theoretically sound computational procedures, which are
encapsulated in a logical and easy-to-use shell. As a result, many geotechnical engineers
world-wide have adopted the product and are using it for engineering purposes.
Plaxis Development Community: Research and development of the PLAXIS software
is supported by the Plaxis Development Community (PDC), in which a consortium of
more than 30 international companies participate. The consortium contributes financially
to the PLAXIS developments and checks the efficiency and quality of the resulting
software products. The consortium provides a valuable link with engineering practice.
Future developments are discussed within the consortium and feedback is provided after
new releases.
Memberships: The PLAXIS company and its employees are member of various
institutions on civil and geotechnical engineering throughout the world. The PLAXIS
company is member of NAFEMS, a non-profit organization with the goal to stimulate the
use of the finite element method in various types of engineering.
Scientific network: The development of the PLAXIS products would not be possible
without world-wide research at universities and research institutes. To ensure that the
high technical standard of PLAXIS is maintained and that new technology is adopted, the
development team is in contact with a large network of researchers in the field of
geo-mechanics and numerical methods.

structures. a finite element mesh is easily generated. Geotechnical applications require advanced constitutive models for the simulation of the non-linear. Geogrids: Geogrids (or geotextiles) are often used in practice for the construction of 12 General information | PLAXIS 2016 . From this geometry model. these elements may be used to simulate the thin zone of intensely shearing material at the contact between a tunnel lining and the surrounding soil. since soil is a multi-phase material. loads and boundary conditions is based on convenient CAD drawing procedures. many geotechnical projects involve the modelling of structures and the interaction between the structures and the soil. a TIN surface can be assigned to a borehole to characterize the ground surface. High-order elements: Quadratic 6-node and 4th order 15-node triangular elements are available in PLAXIS 2D to model the deformations and stresses in the soil.GENERAL INFORMATION SHORT REVIEW OF FEATURES PLAXIS is a finite element package intended for the two-dimensional or three-dimensional analysis of deformation. Multiple boreholes can be placed in the geometry to define a non-horizontal soil stratigraphy or an inclined ground surface. For example. The stiffness of these elements is defined using linear elastic material orthotropy. in addition to the Serviceability Limit State calculations. stability and groundwater flow in geotechnical engineering.g. PLAXIS automatically interpolates layer and ground surface positions in between the boreholes. Eurocode 7 or LRFD) and applied during calculations. Graphical input of geometry models: The input of soil data. PLAXIS is equipped with features to deal with various aspects of complex geotechnical structures. In addition. which allows for a detailed modelling of the geometry. Plates: These special features can be used to model thin two-dimensional structures in the ground with a significant flexural rigidity (bending stiffness). Quadratic tetrahedral 10-node elements are available in PLAXIS 3D. special procedures are required to deal with hydrostatic and non-hydrostatic pore pressures in the soil. Automatic mesh generation: PLAXIS allows for automatic generation of unstructured finite element meshes with options for global and local mesh refinement. Beams: Beam elements can be used to model slender one-dimensional objects with a significant flexural rigidity. A special option exists for the analyses of prestressed ground anchors and excavation supports. Alternatively. Interfaces: Joint elements are available to model soil-structure interaction. Design approaches: A coherent set of partial factors for loads and model parameters can be defined according to the applicable Ultimate Limit State design method (e. construction stages. Values of interface friction angle and adhesion are generally not the same as the friction angle and cohesion of the surrounding soil. Boreholes: Soil layers are defined by means of boreholes. The behaviour of these elements is defined using a normal stiffness and a maximum force. time-dependent and anisotropic behaviour of soils and/or rock. A brief summary of the important features of all PLAXIS programs is given below. Although the modelling of the soil itself is an important issue. Anchors: Elastoplastic spring elements are used to model anchors and struts.

It is based on the well-known Hoek-Brown failure criterion with practical input parameters. Advanced soil models: As a general second-order model. The Mohr-Coulomb model may be used to compute realistic bearing capacities and collapse loads of footings. It is often convenient to combine these elements with interfaces to model the interaction with the surrounding soil. Tunnels: The PLAXIS program offers a convenient option to create circular and non-circular tunnels using arcs and lines. Mohr-Coulomb model: This robust and simple non-linear model is based on soil parameters that are known in most practical situations. More detailed information on these models can be found in the Material Models Manual. SHORT REVIEW OF FEATURES reinforced embankments or soil retaining structures. This model allows for plastic compaction (cap hardening) as well as plastic shearing due to deviatoric loading (shear hardening). It may also be used to calculate a safety factor using a 'phi-c reduction' approach. which is referred to as the Soft Soil Creep model. User-defined soil models: A special feature in this PLAXIS program is the user-defined soil models option. the Jointed Rock model may be used for stratified and jointed rock formations. Additional features such as loads or rock bolts may be defined at the tunnel contour. the Hardening Soil model with small-strain stiffness is available. Not all non-linear features of soil behaviour are included in this model. Loads: The program allows for various types of loads (point loads. Fully isoparametric elements are used to model the curved boundaries within the mesh. Embedded beams: These special elements consist of beam elements with embedded interface elements to describe the interaction of a pile or rockbolt with the surrounding soil or rock at the skin and the tip of a pile. as well as other applications in which the failure behaviour of the soil plays a dominant role. To analyse accurately the time-dependent and logarithmic compression behaviour of normally consolidated soft soils. The beam element is considered to be linear elastic and its behaviour is defined using elastic stiffness properties. Plates and interfaces may be used to model the tunnel lining and the interaction with the surrounding soil. The behaviour of these elements is defined using a normal stiffness and a maximum tension force. As an alternative. Hoek-Brown model: This model may be used to describe the stiffness and strength of intact and weathered rock formations. The failure behaviour of the embedded pile elements is defined by their bearing capacity. which is called the Hardening Soil model. The embedded interface elements are considered to be elasto-plastic. line loads and distributed loads) that could be applied in the model. Different loads and load levels can be activated independently in each construction stage. The plate element is considered to be linear elastic and its behaviour is defined using elastic stiffness properties. The embedded interface elements are considered to be elasto-plastic. a Creep model is available. This feature enables users to include self-programmed soil models in PLAXIS 2016 | General information 13 . Various methods have been implemented to analyse the deformations that occur as a result of various methods of tunnel construction. an elastoplastic type of hyperbolic model is available. To account for the increased stiffness of soils at small strains. These elements can be simulated in PLAXIS by the use of special tension elements. however. The failure behaviour of the embedded pile elements is defined by their bearing capacity. Embedded beam rows: These special elements consist of plate elements with embedded interface elements to describe the interaction of the pile with the soil at the skin and the foot of the pile.

the applied load is scaled down to capture the peak load and any residual loads. but not for sheet-pile walls or embankments. A consolidation analysis requires the input of permeability coefficients in the various soil layers. by soil excavation during an underground construction project. This applies to beams. but it may also be useful for practising engineers. for example. This definition may be suitable for foundation structures. changing of water pressure distributions. Steady state pore pressure: Complex pore pressure distributions may be generated on the basis of a combination of phreatic levels or direct input of water pressures. application of loads. Transient flow and fully coupled flow-deformation analysis are available in PlaxFlow module. Staged construction: This powerful PLAXIS feature enables a realistic simulation of construction and excavation processes by activating and deactivating clusters of elements. Soil tests: The soil test option in PLAXIS is a convenient procedure to check the behaviour of the selected soil material model with the given material parameters.GENERAL INFORMATION the calculations. After entering the model parameters. An overview of existing user-defined soil models is available on the PLAXIS website. In conventional load-controlled calculations the iterative procedure breaks down as soon as the load is increased beyond the peak load. Excess pore pressures are computed during plastic calculations when undrained soil layers are subjected to loads. etc. Undrained loading situations are often decisive for the stability of geotechnical structures. This option is primarily of interest for researchers and scientists at universities and research institutes. Consolidation analysis: The decay of excess pore pressures with time can be computed using a consolidation analysis. Excess pore pressures: PLAXIS distinguishes between drained and undrained soils to model permeable sands as well as almost impermeable clays. Automatic time stepping procedures make the analysis robust and easy-to-use. Safety analysis: The factor of safety is usually defined as the ratio of the failure load to the working load. the user can quickly simulate several standard soil tests and compare the results against the results from actual laboratory tests. With arc-length control. however. For this latter type of structure it is more appropriate to use the soil mechanics definition of a safety factor. Arc-length control: This feature enables accurate computations of collapse loads and failure mechanisms to be carried out. Automatic load stepping: The PLAXIS program runs in an automatic step size and automatic time step selection mode. This procedure allows for a realistic assessment of stresses and displacements as caused. geogrids. In PLAXIS 2D a steady-state groundwater flow calculation can be performed as an alternative to calculate the pore pressure distribution in problems that involve steady flow or seepage. Geometry boundaries can be set open or closed for consolidation. plates. Orthotropic structural behaviour: Structural behaviour may be defined as linear elastic material orthotropy. This avoids the need for users to select suitable load increments for non-linear calculations and it guarantees an efficient and robust calculation process. The SoilTest facility can be used to optimise model parameters such that a best fit is obtained between the model results and the results of real soil lab tests. Geometric orthotropy of plates with a particular profile can also be emulated to a certain extend. which is the ratio of the available 14 General information | PLAXIS 2016 .

PLAXIS 2016 | General information 15 . For some situations. stresses. Stress paths: A special tool is available for drawing load-displacement curves. SHORT REVIEW OF FEATURES shear strength to the minimum shear strength needed for equilibrium. Presentation of results: The PLAXIS postprocessor has enhanced graphical features for displaying computational results. In these situations it is advisable to perform a more accurate Updated Lagrangian calculation. PLAXIS can be used to compute this factor of safety using a 'phi-c reduction' procedure. Plots and tables can be sent to output devices or to the Windows® clipboard to export them to other software. Particularly the visualization of stress paths provides a valuable insight into local soil behaviour and enables a detailed analysis of the results of a PLAXIS calculation. Updated Lagrangian analysis: Using this option. which is called Updated Mesh in PLAXIS. Since calculations can be quite time consuming. strains and structural forces can be obtained from the output tables. Exact values of displacements. a conventional small strain analysis may show a significant change of geometry. it is important to check the model carefully before starting the calculation process. Preview option: A convenient preview option is available to check model and calculation settings in a graphical 2D or 3D environment. the finite element mesh is continuously updated during the calculation. stress paths and stress-strain diagrams.

Although the Lesser General Public License is Less protective of the users' freedom. so that it becomes a de-facto standard. To achieve this. software patents pose a constant threat to the existence of any free program. For example. a derivative of the original library. distribution and modification follow. the GNU Lesser General Public License. and is quite different from the ordinary General Public License. We call this license the "Lesser" General Public License because it does Less to protect the user's freedom than the ordinary General Public License. It also provides other free software developers Less of an advantage over competing non-free programs. Therefore. as well as its variant. the Lesser license provides advantages in certain special circumstances. This license. The ordinary General Public License therefore permits such linking only if the entire combination fits its criteria of freedom. if the library is modified by someone else and passed on. so we use the Lesser General Public License. there may be a special need to encourage the widest possible use of a certain library. is covered by the ordinary GNU General Public License. there is little to gain by limiting the free library to free software only. However. These disadvantages are the reason we use the ordinary General Public License for many libraries. For example. In this case. permission to use a particular library in non-free programs enables a greater number of people to use a large body of free software. which gives you legal permission to copy. we want to make it very clear that there is no warranty for the free library. whereas the latter PLAXIS 2016 | General information 23 . We protect your rights with a two-step method: (1) we copyright the library. We wish to make sure that a company cannot effectively restrict the users of a free program by obtaining a restrictive license from a patent holder. Pay close attention to the difference between a "work based on the library" and a "work that uses the library". A more frequent case is that a free library does the same job as widely used non-free libraries. To protect each distributor. Finally. the GNU/Linux operating system. so that the original author’s reputation will not be affected by problems that might be introduced by others. Most GNU software. The Lesser General Public License permits more lax criteria for linking other code with the library. permission to use the GNU C Library in non-free programs enables many more people to use the whole GNU operating system. When a program is linked with a library. applies to certain designated libraries. THIRD PARTY SOFTWARE LICENSES/NOTICES terms so they know their rights. on rare occasions. In other cases. non-free programs must be allowed to use the library. whether statically or using a shared library. including some libraries. The former contains code derived from the library. we insist that any patent license obtained for a version of the library must be consistent with the full freedom of use specified in this license. the combination of the two is legally speaking a combined work. the recipients should know that what they have is not the original version. and (2) we offer you this license. We use this license for certain libraries in order to permit linking those libraries into non-free programs. it does ensure that the user of a program that is linked with the Library has the freedom and the wherewithal to run that program using a modified version of the Library.

and output from such a program is covered only if its contents constitute a work based on the Library (independent of the use of the Library in a tool for writing it). A "library" means a collection of software functions and/or data prepared so as to be conveniently linked with application programs (which use some of those functions and data) to form executables. complete source code means all the source code for all modules it contains.

"Source code" for a work means the preferred form of the work for making modifications to it. Activities other than copying. Each licensee is addressed as "you". they are outside its scope. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Library's complete source code as you receive it. This License Agreement applies to any software library or other program which contains a notice placed by the copyright holder or other authorized party saying it may be distributed under the terms of this Lesser General Public License (also called "this License"). below.

but is designed to work with the Library by being compiled or linked with it. so the ordinary GNU General Public License applies to all subsequent copies and derivative works made from that copy. the intent is to exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or collective works based on the Library. (If a newer version than version 2 of the ordinary GNU General Public License has appeared. a function in a library to compute square roots has a purpose that is entirely well-defined independent of the application. If distribution of object code is made by offering access to copy from a designated place. Subsection 2d requires that any application-supplied function or table used by this function must be optional: if the application does not supply it. and its terms. is called a "work that uses the Library". and performs whatever part of its purpose remains meaningful. and therefore falls outside the scope of this License. it is irreversible for that copy. the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of this License. and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it. But when you distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based on the Library. This option is useful when you wish to copy part of the code of the Library into a program that is not a library. version 2. Therefore. rather. Thus. Such a work. you must alter all the notices that refer to this License. even though third parties are not compelled to copy the source along with the object code. 4.) These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole. which must be distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange. If identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Library. 5. under Section 2) in object code or executable form under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable source code.

In addition. 3. in isolation. mere aggregation of another work not based on the Library with the Library (or with a work based on the Library) on a volume of a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under the scope of this License. so that they refer to the ordinary GNU General Public License. However.

Section 6 states terms for distribution of such executables. rather than copying library functions into the executable. A suitable mechanism is one that (1) uses at run time a copy of the library already present on the user's computer system. and (2) will operate properly with a modified version of the library. as object code and/or source code. and distribute that work under terms of your choice. and.) • b) Use a suitable shared library mechanism for linking with the Library. Also. data structure layouts and accessors. then the use of the object file is unrestricted. the object code for the work may be a derivative work of the Library even though the source code is not. provided that the terms permit modification of the work for the customer’s own use and reverse engineering for debugging such modifications. as well as a reference directing the user to the copy of this License. with the complete machine-readable "work that uses the Library". Whether this is true is especially significant if the work can be linked without the Library.) Otherwise. As an exception to the Sections above. you may also combine or link a "work that uses the Library" with the Library to produce a work containing portions of the Library. you must include the copyright notice for the Library among them. if the user installs one. above. The executable is therefore covered by this License. Any executables containing that work also fall under Section 6. regardless of whether it is legally a derivative work. You must give prominent notice with each copy of the work that the Library is used in it and that the Library and its use are covered by this License. • d) If distribution of the work is made by offering access to copy from a designated place. whether or not they are linked directly with the Library itself. When a "work that uses the Library" uses material from a header file that is part of the Library. and small macros and small inline functions (ten lines or less in length). You must supply a copy of this License. valid for at least three years.GENERAL INFORMATION "work that uses the library". as long as the modified version is interface-compatible with the version that the work was made with. or if the work is itself a library. for a charge no more than the cost of performing this distribution. if the work is an executable linked with the Library. The threshold for this to be true is not precisely defined by law. so that the user can modify the Library and then relink to produce a modified executable containing the modified Library. If the work during execution displays copyright notices. (Executables containing this object code plus portions of the Library will still fall under Section 6. 6.

If you link other code with the library. there may be a special need to encourage the widest PLAXIS 2016 | General information 39 . and that you are informed that you can do these things. Therefore. When we speak of free software. We call this license the "Lesser" General Public License because it does Less to protect the user's freedom than the ordinary General Public License. Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for this service if you wish). It also provides other free software developers Less of an advantage over competing non-free programs. you must provide complete object files to the recipients. including some libraries. However. which gives you legal permission to copy. When a program is linked with a library. To protect each distributor. the recipients should know that what they have is not the original version. To protect your rights. we want to make it very clear that there is no warranty for the free library. The Lesser General Public License permits more lax criteria for linking other code with the library. so that they can relink them with the library after making changes to the library and recompiling it.

A more frequent case is that a free library does the same job as widely used non-free libraries. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Library's complete source code as you receive it. non-free programs must be allowed to use the library. Whether that is true depends on what the Library does and what the program that uses the Library does.)

The former contains code derived from the library. there is little to gain by limiting the free library to free software only. DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION 0. plus any associated interface definition files. A "work based on the Library" means either the Library or any derivative work under copyright law: that is to say. keep intact all the notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any warranty. Although the Lesser General Public License is Less protective of the users' freedom. permission to use a particular library in non-free programs enables a greater number of people to use a large body of free software. and distribute a copy of this License along with the Library. This License Agreement applies to any software library or other program which contains a notice placed by the copyright holder or other authorized party saying it may be distributed under the terms of this Lesser General Public License (also called "this License"). For a library. so we use the Lesser General Public License. A "library" means a collection of software functions and/or data prepared so as to be conveniently linked with application programs (which use some of those functions and data) to form executables. For example. a work containing the Library or a portion of it. In other cases. permission to use the GNU C Library in non-free programs enables many more people to use the whole GNU operating system.

Thus. in the event an application does not supply such function or table. Therefore. so that they refer to the ordinary GNU General Public License. thus forming a work based on the Library. THIRD PARTY SOFTWARE LICENSES/NOTICES You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy. and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in themselves. mere aggregation of another work not based on the Library with the Library (or with a work based on the Library) on a volume of a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under the scope of this License. c) You must cause the whole of the work to be licensed at no charge to all third parties under the terms of this License. rather. a function in a library to compute square roots has a purpose that is entirely well-defined independent of the application. This option is useful when you wish to copy part of the code of the Library into a program that is not a library. 2. the facility still operates. you must alter all the notices that refer to this License. the intent is to exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or collective works based on the Library. Once this change is made in a given copy. provided that you also meet all of these conditions: a) The modified work must itself be a software library. But when you distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based on the Library. whose permissions for other licensees extend to the entire whole. it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest your rights to work written entirely by you. the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of this License. Subsection 2d requires that any application-supplied function or table used by this function must be optional: if the application does not supply it.) These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole. so the ordinary GNU General Public License applies to all subsequent copies and derivative works made from that copy. If identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Library. instead of to this License. In addition. You may opt to apply the terms of the ordinary GNU General Public License instead of this License to a given copy of the Library. it is irreversible for that copy. then you must make a good faith effort to ensure that. the square root function must still compute square roots.

the object code for the work may be a derivative work of the Library even though the source code is not. you may distribute the object code for the work under the terms of Section 6. if the work is an executable linked with the Library. The executable is therefore covered by this License. is not a derivative work of the Library. regardless of whether it is legally a derivative work. If distribution of object code is made by offering access to copy from a designated place. Also. rather than a "work that uses the library". Whether this is true is especially significant if the work can be linked without the Library. which must be distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange. A program that contains no derivative of any portion of the Library. and. but is designed to work with the Library by being compiled or linked with it. Any executables containing that work also fall under Section 6. (Executables containing this object code plus portions of the Library will still fall under Section 6. Such a work. then offering equivalent access to copy the source code from the same place satisfies the requirement to distribute the source code. then the use of the object file is unrestricted. As an exception to the Sections above. you may also combine or link a "work that uses the Library" with the Library to produce a work containing portions of the Library. if the work is a derivative of the Library. with the complete machine-readable "work that uses the Library". and distribute that work under terms of your choice.) Otherwise. The threshold for this to be true is not precisely defined by law. or if the work is itself a library. you must do one of these things: a) Accompany the work with the complete corresponding machine-readable source code for the Library including whatever changes were used in the work (which must be distributed under Sections 1 and 2 above). 5. data structure layouts and accessors. 6. provided that the terms permit modification of the work for the customer's own use and reverse engineering for debugging such modifications. whether or not they are linked directly with the Library itself. and small macros and small inline functions (ten lines or less in length).
