Rocscience Intern Program: From Student to Engineer

Since its inception, Rocscience has always been a company with deep roots in the academic world. While the company has grown and evolved greatly over the years, it still continues to maintain its connection to the world of academics and research. Two of the big ways Rocscience do so is through the Rocscience Academic Bundle and the company’s nearly 20 year old intern program.

Using Rocscience Tools to implement Deep Foundation Resistance while performing Slope Stability Analysis

Deep Foundations Institute recently hosted the virtual conference S3: Slope, Slides, and Stabilization on 5th August 2020, and the Rocscience Team was represented by Dr. Sina Javankhoshdel and Jeff Lam in the software discussion panel as part of the event. This gave us the opportunity to highlight the features and showcase the application of our software programs to a specific slope stability analysis problem, with the goal of advancing the state of practice.

The Latest RS2 comes with new features for Groundwater and Seepage Analysis

Like with most technological advancements, innovation often breeds innovation, and such is the case with this latest addition to RS2’s Seepage Analysis functions. After a new feature was added to Slide2 and RS2 that allowed for users to define anisotropic strength parameters in their model, a flood of requests were made for adding a similar feature for anisotropic permeability during one’s seepage analysis. This new K1 Surface feature is one of many being added in the latest release of RS2.

RSPile: Effects of pile rigidity and soil stiffness on the settlement of piles

One of the benefits of having RSPile is the ability to do side research to have a better expectation of how piles will behave. In this article, RSPile showcases how to optimize the stiffness of the pile to consume more of the skin resistance capacity and get shorter flexible piles rather than having long stiff piles. This may lead to more cost-effective analysis, especially if the settlement is within acceptable limits.
