Description Examine2D (7.0) is a 2-dimensional plane strain indirect boundary element program for the elastic stress analysis of underground or surface excavations. Unlike the finite element and finite difference methods, the boundary element method only requires discretization of the excavation boundaries, eliminating the need for complex volume mesh generation. It was developed as an educational tool for both practicing engineers and students, and is ideal for quick parametric analysis and preliminary design. With state of the art interactive input and editing, you can create a model and view results with a few mouse clicks. It is primarily for the analysis of excavations in rock, but can also be used for soil applications. A unique feature is the real time stress analysis capability, which allows you to edit the model, and in real-time, visualize the analysis results. You can change the shape or position of excavations, material properties and far field stresses, and the contours and graphs of stresses and displacements will be immediately updated to show the influence of these changes. Contour results include principal stress, displacements, and strength factor based on either Mohr-Coulomb or Generalized Hoek-Brown strength criteria. Stress, displacement and failure trajectories can be viewed. The Query option allows you to query the contour data at any location, on boundaries or within the rock mass. The query data can be displayed directly on the model, graphed, or exported to Excel. Far field stress can be constant or gravitational. Isotropic or transversely isotropic elastic models. Constant, linear or quadratic boundary element formulations. Plane strain or complete plane strain analysis. Uniform distributed loads can be applied to model pressure or support forces. Drawing and annotation toolkit and customized printing output simplify the task of generating professional looking reports and assignments. Export image files to clipboard or .jpg, .bmp, .wmf, .emf. Models can be imported into the finite element program Phase2 for further analysis including plasticity, staging and support.
