Elk is a free geotechnical platform that can be extended with either free or/and commercial plugins.
evaluate tests, model soils, design structures.
A single solution for all the steps of a geotechnical project: One type of data, several representations Test, soil model, infrastructure: easily view and interact with 3D earth map, depth viewer.
Testing - In-situ testing (pressuremeters, static or dynamic penetrometers, drillings, logs), - Laboratory testing (triaxial, oedometer). Tests are imported, georeferenced in the platform and visualized. Evaluation is carried out using specific plugins.
Soil models Depending on needs: - Simple lithological logs including average values within each layer, - 2D geological cross-sections , - More complex 3D models. Geomechanical properties are associated with these models. Models are built eather from tests or from scratch. Models are then being used to design infrastructure.
Infrastructure - geotechnical aspects - Shallow foundations, - Deep foundations (piles, micro-piles), - Monopile foundations, - Roads, structures, - Retaining walls (anchored, slurry walls, ...) Plugins enable infrastructure design.
