Geomechanica is pleased to offer a cloud computing service, Irazu Cloud, for its Irazu simulation software, the innovative simulation package for modelling rock mass deformation and fracturing. This service employs conventional software applications for model construction and post-processing, together with cloud computing for model execution. With this approach, you will build the Irazu models on Read More >>>



 
Geomechanica’s new Irazu simulation software for modelling geomaterials
Posted by

Modelling the deformation and failure process of rock represents a challenging task due to the intrinsic characteristics of the rock material and the presence of natural discontinuities. To address the modelling challenge, Geomechanica has been developing Irazu, an innovative software package based on the hybrid finite-discrete element method (FEMDEM or FDEM), which combines conventional continuum Read More >>>
