CESAR is a 2D and 3D Finite Element software enabling modelling and analysis of geotechnical problems. Proven, powerful and user-friendly, it covers a wide scope of soil and rock mechanics applications (deformation, stability…). Civil and geotechnical engineers use CESAR for design and verification but also for expert evaluations of following projects: supports/retention systems (diaphragm walls, retaining walls, sheetpiling); tunnels and underground cavities; soil-structure interactions; dams, embankments on soft soils (dissipation of excess pore pressure).
CESAR takes profit of research results at the Université Gustave Eiffel (former LCPC or IFSTTAR) and proposes an innovative tool to experience the production of user’s constitutive models.
