CRUX offers support to engineering companies worldwide in the modelling of geotechnical problems using FEM calculations by means of PLAXIS.
Because CRUX is highly experienced in a wide range of geotechnical design issues and also has been involved in the use and development of PLAXIS since the early days of this FEM program, we are the ideal partner to help you with specific modelling issues. This way you can reach the optimal model for your calculations, as well as help your employees significantly develop their PLAXIS modelling skills.
The geotechnical modelling experts of CRUX are both skilled in very practical design as well as in advanced finite element modelling issues. CRUX engineers also have extensive experience in choosing the correct material models and soil and structural parameters for your model.
Over the years CRUX has helped out many international companies with their PLAXIS modelling issues and has trained a wide range of geotechnical engineers in the (advanced) use of PLAXIS. For instance, we can help you with building an optimal mesh and model, defining calculation stages and fine tuning your calculation. Our extensive project experience will help you find errors and workarounds much quicker and easier.
In addition, CRUX also has very convenient pre- and postprocessing software available that can help you considerably speed up your calculations and interpretation processes. This way you will be able to work considerably more efficient!
Also, because CRUX mainly works in the Netherlands and, when working abroad, are almost exclusively active for Dutch contractors, there is no risk for any conflict of interest.
Our services can be provided on site, on your location, at our location and/or by video conferencing / desktop sharing services and range from a quick brainstorm to extensive on-site support.
CRUX services can be performed on an hourly rate or on a fixed fee basis.
The client should be in possession of their own PLAXIS license.
CRUX will not accept any design liability for the work committed under the expert service contract (for this an engineering contract should be granted).
