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 .

NOTE:

  • The Export to Phase2 PWP Format option is only enabled while viewing contours of Total Head, Pressure Head or Pore Pressure.
  • The data saved in the PWP file will correspond to the currently contoured data type which you are viewing (Total Head, Pressure Head or Pore Pressure). Therefore, you must select the desired data type BEFORE you select the Export to Phase2 PWP Format option, so that the correct data will be written to the PWP file.

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.

  • To allow suction pressures, select Allow Suction Pressures from the Export sub-menu of the Groundwater menu (so that a checkmark appears beside the option in the menu). In this case, the (negative) suction pressures will be written to the PWP file, when the file is saved.
  • If you DO NOT want the suction pressures to be written to the PWP file, then make sure that this option is NOT selected (i.e. no checkmark appears beside the option in the menu). In this case, a value of zero pore pressure will be written to the PWP file, rather than a (negative) suction pressure.
