Make your customers happy - be happy

Deliver geoengineering projects with confidence

Reduce risk above ground by understanding uncertainty below.

We’re helping you build a more resilient future by connecting the built world above ground with the hidden world below it.

Unmatched functionality

Ideal for any geotechnical project

PLAXIS is geotechnical analysis software with capabilities to solve common and complex geotechnical problems. It comes with advanced analysis for excavations, foundations, tunnels, and other infrastructure projects in soil and rock.


Model and report on any geoengineering project.


Analyze common and complex geotechnical challenges.


Trust a single source of truth for geotechnical data management.

Brice Exley, P.E., Haley & Aldrich

"The power to collaborate with design, construction, and the owner is where PLAXIS really shines. During meetings, I can quickly respond to stakeholder requests by adjusting geometry and sharing multiple scenarios. Being able to model “on the fly” helps us avoid wasting time going back and forth on emails and phone calls."

PLAXIS MonopileDesigner - VIRTUOS4U GmbH

Reduce the Length of Piles by approx. 35%

PLAXIS Monopile Designer

Reduce costs of onshore and offshore wind farms

The software offers an enhanced design method that dramatically reduces the amount of steel needed for monopile foundations, lowering the overall costs of wind farms. It allows the transfer of results of the PISA Joint Industry Research Project into daily engineering practices.


3D geotechnical conceptual Model Builder Software

PLAXIS Designer

Build 3D conceptual models, produce visually appealing models, and import data efficiently

Overcome the challenges of merging and analyzing data. With Bentley’s open modeling environment, PLAXIS Designer enables you to visualize and manipulate geotechnical site data such as topology, boreholes, piezometers, and other field instrumentation data, as well as engineering staged construction and design.


2D/3D Limit Equilibrium geotechnical Engineering Software


PLAXIS 2D LE and PLAXIS 3D LE are powerful applications for limit equilibrium slope stability analysis and finite element analysis of groundwater seepage.

PLAXIS 3D LE includes everything in PLAXIS 2D LE, plus:

  • 3D analysis
  • Complex geometry creation
  • Parallel processing to save time

Important changes to PLAXIS LE and PLAXIS Designer Support
