Export to Phase2 PWP Format

The Export to Phase2 PWP Format option in the Export sub-menu of the Groundwater menu, allows you to save a PWP (Pore Water Pressure) file, which can be imported into the program Phase2.

Phase2 is a finite element stress analysis program available from Rocscience. The PWP file can be used to import pore pressure data into Phase2, to carry out an effective stress analysis. For more information about Phase2 see www.rocscience.com .


Allow Suction Pressures

The Allow Suction Pressures option allows you to control whether suction pressures (i.e. negative pore pressures computed in the unsaturated zone) will be written to the PWP file, when you use the Export to Phase2 PWP Format option.
