Irazu by Geomechanica Inc.

Innovation Through Simulation

Irazu is a versatile 2D/3D finite-discrete element software package for the analysis of large deformations, fracturing, and stability in rock masses.

The integration of various multiphysics solvers and advanced features into a single software package enables Irazu to be used for a wide range of engineering applications, including but not limited to excavations, slope stability, tunneling, dynamic analysis, mining, and reservoir geomechanics. Irazu comes with extensive tutorial, theory, and verification manuals.

Why Irazu?
