This presentation
Fine s.r.o. a bit history
Geotechnical software GEO5
Show of GEO5 Gravity wall, Slope stability
This seminar - how to do it, changes

Question? After each session, during coffee breaks, or


you can interrupt me.

2
Bit of history Prague 1989
Velvet revolution
Private enterprise, many small firms
Demand for easy, user friendly software
Modular system, low cost
Based on the Czechoslovak
standards CSN

3
Bit of history first leaflets, exhibitions (1990)
GEO geotechnical software, FIN structural software, TRUSS timber roofs
Bit of history GEO3 (1995)
DOS version
Graphical enviroment
15 programs

5
GEO4 Windows version (2000)
20 individual programs, new FEM, Tunnel
English localization
GEO4 good sales (UK, Spain, Poland, Hungary,
India, Malaysia, Singapore) even it was based on CZ
standards
First dealers network, first international feedbacks

Need for international version => GEO5


6
GEO5 first international version (2004)
More theories
(earth pressures, settlement, bearing cap.)
New possibilities (earthquake, CPTs)
English and metric units
All coefficients and partial factors could be change by user
Recommended settings for various countries
Built-in help
First dealers meetings
Localization to languages
/Spanish, Polish, Hungarian, Greek, Russian, Turkish/

7
GEO5 Eurocodes, certifications (2010)

Implementation of Eurocode EN 1997 - 1


Pretty complicated, not clear standard
National Annexes (now about 15)
Design approaches 1 - 3 -> New user settings
Certification in Russia
Selling in USA and worldwide as Bentley GSA
( Geostructural Analysis)
Certification in China

GEO5 now
5000 users in 120 countries, 300 universities
17 language localizations
Many standards, codes, theories
Verification methodology /EN, LRFD, SF, LST, Chinese/
50 dealers worldwide /best 2016 CZ, Russia, Poland, China, Hungary, USA, Chile/

Why GEO5
Confidence most important
28 years Test of Time
Hotline, support, bug-fixing
Automatic actualization of software
Development based on feedback from customers
Two versions per year
- spring release 1st May
- new edition 1st November
Maintenance program (new versions for free,
discounts from new orders, hotline by phone)

Next - Show of GEO5, basic work with Gravity wall


23
This seminar optimization of program
Not doing seminars very often
Too much programs and topics, different knowledge
and interests of audience
Can modify program according to you

Who you are?


Geotechnical eng., structural eng., transport eng.,
academicians, students, others.
What geotechnical programs do you use?
GEO5, Plaxis, Midas, RockScience, Geoslope, GGU.
Any special interest?
