GEO5 2024 Update Released

The geotechnical software program, GEO5, has recently been updated with a host of new features as part of their mid-year 2024 update. This includes a significant update to their Prefab Wall program for modeling modular block mechanically stabilized earth walls, large precast blocks (e.g. Redi-Rock) and similar wall types. You can even include user-defined blocks if their catalog of blocks doesn’t have what you are looking for. See the video below. If you are designing retaining walls, this program is definitely worth a look!
