The PLAXIS-GiD program is a special purpose three-dimensional finite element program used for very complex geotechnical analysis.
The modelling of the geometry is done by the GiD program, which is based on CAD (Computer Aided Design). The program is capable of generating structured and unstructured meshes and consists of a pre-processor.
In addition to the GiD pre-process program to model a geometry, a PLAXIS data tree is available to define materials, structures, loads, fixities, prescribed displacements, interfaces and calculation stages. The program will use the PLAXIS material models as well as the PLAXIS 3D kernel. As a post-processor the PLAXIS Output program is used.
The user interface consists of two sub-programs: the GiD program with the PLAXIS data tree and the PLAXIS Output program. The GiD program is used as a pre-processor, used to define the problem geometry and calculation phases. The Output program is a postprocessor, used to inspect the results of calculations in a three-dimensional view or in cross sections, and to plot graphs (curves) of output quantities of pre-selected geometry points.
