QUAKE/W is a geotechnical finite element CAD software product for the dynamic analysis of earth structures subjected to earthquake shaking, or point dynamic forces from a blast or a sudden impact load. QUAKE/W determines the motion and excess porewater pressures that arise due to shaking. Its comprehensive formulation makes QUAKE/W well suited to analyzing a wide range of problems.
Generalized material property functions allow you to use any laboratory or published data. Three constitutive models are supported: a LinearElastic model, an Equivalent Linear model, and an effective stress NonLinear model. QUAKE/W uses the Direct Integration Method to compute the motion and excess porewater pressures arising from inertial forces at userdefined time steps.
QUAKE/W can be used to analyze almost any dynamic earthquake problem you will encounter in your geotechnical, civil, and mining engineering projects
