Seequent | The Bentley Subsurface Company

Seequent is the subsurface software company within Bentley Systems. Together, we’re helping build a more resilient future by connecting the built world above ground with the hidden world below it. It’s easy to purchase a Virtuoso Subscription, through Virtuosity, Bentley’s eStore, and still get the expert technical support from Seequent’s subsurface experts.

GeoStudio 3D

GeoStudio 3D offers a range of numerical analysis tools for simulating conditions above and below the ground surface. GeoStudio 3D can be used for a range of applications including natural soil and rock slopes, regional groundwater systems, excavations and open pit mines, dewatering systems, earthen dams and levees, reinforced earth structures, and tailings storage facilities.  

Two tiers are available to meet a variety of modelling requirements. The tiers and the corresponding functionality are summarized below or download detailed product comparison.

GeoStudio 3D 

GeoStudio 3D (SLOPE3D) offers the foundational capability to perform Limit Equilibrium slope stability analysis for soil and rock. GeoStudio 3D offers a comprehensive list of features| including:  

  • Rigorous limit equilibrium formulation
  • Multiple analysis methods, including Morgenstern-Price and Spencer
  • Slip surface search methods including Entry-Exit and Cuckoo
  • Efficient root-finding algorithm for computing the factor of safety
  • Pore water pressure definition using piezometric lines| Ru| and B-bar
  • Partial factor formulation and limit state design support for Eurocode or Load Resistance Factor Design
  • Comprehensive material model library for soil and rock
  • Pseudo-static approach for seismic analysis 
GeoStudio 3D Advanced 

GeoStudio 3D Advanced (SLOPE3D + SEEP3D) offers all the essential capabilities of the GeoStudio 3D tier| while introducing the ability to simulate steady-state and transient groundwater flow in both saturated and unsaturated soil and rock. The additional features offered in GeoStudio 3D Advanced include:  

  • Comprehensive saturated-unsaturated formulation for steady-state or transient groundwater flow
  • Seamless integration of finite element pore-water pressure with slope stability analysis for both steady-state and transient problems
  • Rigorous under-relaxation and convergence strategies
  • Option to include isothermal vapor transfer
  • Estimation routines for hydraulic functions
  • Convenient initial pore water pressure condition definition
  • Complete range of hydraulic boundary conditions  
  • Powerful results graphing and visualization options| including isosurfaces and contouring
  • Ability to assess stability given complex pore water pressure conditions  
GeoStudio 3D includes the following:   


SLOPE3D expands on limit equilibrium capabilities by offering a practical yet sophisticated approach for capturing 3D slope failure mechanisms in both soil and rock, given a variety of slip surface shapes, pore-water pressure conditions and soil properties.

SEEP3D is a powerful finite element software product for modeling 3D groundwater flow in porous media. SEEP3D can model simple saturated steady-state problems or sophisticated saturated / unsaturated transient analyses using the same comprehensive set of material models and boundary conditions as SEEP/W.
