PROVIDING MORE CERTAINTY TO
Specialised software for engineering projects to reduce geotechnical uncertainty. DAARWIN provides realistic safety factors, predicts failure, promotes sustainability and contributes to create leaner designs for more efficient approches.
Thousands of new construction projects are envisioned up around the world, all with the goal of delivering the project on time and within budget. One step in the right direction is to implement innovative approaches, techniques and softwares to improve safety, constrain risk, produce leaner designs and be more reactive to realistic site conditions.
SAALG Geomechanics aims to stimulate good engineering design and construction project management by offering DAARWIN, a specialised cloud-based software which can prevent costly inaccuracies due to geotechnical uncertainties and variable site ground conditions.
Aligned with the NEC spirit, DAARWIN is designed to make the sharing, visualisation and contrast of information easy among different stakeholders. This information includes design, project construction progress and monitoring data. On top of this, DAARWIN is capable of performing back analysis quickly and efficiently through its custom-designed platform.
REALISTIC SAFETY FACTORS
The back analysis tool is capable of adjusting the geotechnical parameters to match the actual measures obtained by the project monitoring systems.
DAARWIN is capable of hosting design information, construction progress, sensor locations and real time data, making engineering review fast and easy to understand.
By combining all the information available in DAARWIN, such as construction geometry, predictions, monitoring data, etc., it gives a much higher level of insight to make informed decisions.
All the data and construction activity is in the same format, without taking in consideration who is sending it and how it is being tracked elsewhere, making it the perfect online archive.
how it works
Upload models created in Plaxis ( 2Dv9, 2Dv16+, 3Dv16+ versions) with the theorical soil materials data.
Upload the data obtained on site, visualise it by zone and date and plot it for its comparative analysis.
Designate the different instruments by their type and features and pinpoint them in the interactive map.
RUN TO IMPROVE
Select a model and the uploaded data to run an optimization. Obtain the most accurate soil parameters with back analysis.
Once you’ve created your instruments, associate them with the points created in the Plaxis model.
VALIDATE YOUR DESIGN
Review the optimized parameters obtained in the run and plot them with the ones used in design to verify their reliability.
FOLLOW UP ON THE PROCESS
Create, manage and visualise all your construction phases by date, zones and activities.
Subscription to the platform includes maintenance and technical support, as well as practical information for its use and set up. We also offer high-end geotechnical engineering services as needed (see on our plans the add-on services). Contact us if you want to learn more about the extras we offer: project set up, custom platform management and consulting services.
