CHEMFLUX™ is able to model contaminant transport through the saturated and unsaturated soil and rock zones. Simple particle tracking may be performed as well as modeling the processes of advection, diffusion, adsorption, decay and density dependencies. CHEMFLUX™ is also able to refine the solution mesh based on any problem variable. CHEMFLUX™ can perform fully coupled advective analysis when combined with SVFLUX™. CHEMFLUX™ is applicable to geotechnical, geoenvironmental, mining and hydrogeological-related projects.

The SVOFFICE™5 release of CHEMFLUX™ software contains the following specific improvements...

Product OverviewProduct Overview

Powerful, Yet Simple Fate & Transport Modeling and Analysis

CHEMFLUX™ can perform fully coupled advective analysis when combined with SVFLUX™. CHEMFLUX™ is applicable to geotechnical, geoenvironmental, mining and hydrological- related projects.

Our CHEMFLUX™ software package continues to offer advanced analysis utilizing full coupling with the SVFLUX™ software as well as automatic mesh refinement in order to offer increased stability in the area of numerical modeling of contaminant fronts. The software also offers 1D, 2D and 3D analysis.

The software can be utilized for geotechnical, civil, or mining engineering projects.

Our limit equilibrium slope stability package has proven popular with our clients. As such it has continued to receive development efforts from our team and we are pleased to present a number of features which solidify the software's position as the best geotechnical stability package in the market.

CHEMFLUX™ is currently being used by universities and consultants around the world. Feel free to contact us for more information.

Customers and TestimonialsCustomers and Testimonials

As an engineering tool, no other software on the market can match the ability of SVFlux and ChemFlux to explore creative solutions for seepage and contaminant hydrogeology problems.”

Robert Donahue, PhD, P.Eng.
University of Alberta

The software developed by SoilVision Systems Ltd. for 3D saturated / unsaturated flow is a powerful tool for the analysis and design of reclamation systems for waste rock and mine tailings. Groundwater flow together with fate and transport issues are central to the design of remedial measures. SoilVision has demonstrated the ability to provide 3D solutions for difficult unsaturated flow problems in waste deposits at mine sites that cannot be solved using current software available. I feel that SoilVision offers a key service with respect to the remediation and design of long-term closure systems for mine waste management.”

Top 10 ReasonsTop 10 Reasons to Purchase

The investment in geotechnical / hydrogeological software is an important decision for most consulting firms. Software must perform well and yield results in a limited timeframe such that reports can be completed on time and under budget. We recognize this at SoilVision Systems Ltd. and and have worked hard over the past number of years to provide software which is both easy to use and technologically advanced. We believe that the current SVOFFICE™5 software product is the best software suite currently available for geotechnical and hydrogeological applications. Listed below are a few of the reasons why your firm would benefit from our software from the perspective of a manager.

1. 3D Modeling Solutions
  • Modeling of systems which are not adequately represented by a simplified 2D cross section may be accomplished in full 3D. Examples include regional flow, levee analysis, and planar geometry.
2. Advanced Slope Stability Analysis
  • With the highly advanced SVSLOPE® slope stability analysis package, your company will have access to the most comprehensive array of deterministic and probabilistic methods of limit equilibrium analysis methods.
3. Advanced Model Coupling
  • Coupling of the air/water/thermal phases allows more comprehensive analysis of i) cover designs and, ii) waste rock flow, and iii) various other applications.
  • Coupled density-dependant flow allows handling of salt-water/ fresh water potash mine tailings scenarios and tidal inflow scenarios.
4. Automatic Mesh Generation and Refinement 5. Spatially Varying Material Properties
  • Material properties may now be set to vary spatially in any particular region of the model domain. This is available in our SVSLOPE® and SVFLUX™ packages
6. Product Integration
  • Products support highly integrated and coupled solutions. i.e. Rainfall on an unsaturated slope potentially causing instability.
7. Comprehensive Probabilistic Analysis
  • Monte Carlo, APEM, Latin Hypercube and other types of probabilistic analysis may be carried out in our SVSLOPE® package. Monte Carlo analysis for steady state models can be carried out in our SVFLUX™ package.
8. Customized Solutions
  • Our mathematical scripting language can be used to build your own customized finite element solutions!
9. Extensive Soil Database
  • Our SOILVISION® Database of unsaturated hydraulic properties includes laboratory data on over 6500 soils and 24 theoretical methods of estimating unsaturated hydraulic properties.
10. World Class Support
