Description  VERSATS2D is a computer program for static 2D planestrain finite element analyses of stresses, deformations, and soilstructure interactions. The static analyses can be conducted using stressstrain constitutive relationships from linear elastic model to elastoplastic models, i.e., MohrCoulomb model and VonMises model. This program can also be used to compute or determine static preexisting stresses for use in a subsequent dynamic finite element analysis. Main features are: Linear elastic model; VonMises model; MohrCoulomb model; Stress level dependent stiffness parameters; External load applications; Staged construction by adding layers; Staged excavation by removing layers; Pore water pressure application; Calculation of stresses and deformations caused by strainsoftening of soils; Simulation of sheet pile wall and anchors; Updated Lagrangian analysis; Factors of safety calculation; Gravity on and off ; Calculation of preexisting stresses for use in a dynamic analysis using VERSATD2D; 4node, 6node and 8node solid elements to represent soils; 2node line elements to represent sheet pile walls (beam) or anchors (bar/truss); Use of any consistent units and sign conventions. A free demonstration version is available on the WWW.
