A. Work-Flow
Detailed description, and possibly programming of all the stages for a final product from GeoFuture. In 2015 - 2016 the project will focus on establishing input parameters and data flow in the future calculation programme, as well as improving the user friendliness through the user interfaces.. Responsible: Jan Ludvigsson (Vianova GeoSuite AB)

B. Implementation of 3-D analysis model
Implementation of a general FEM program in GeoSuite. In 2014 this will be finished for the module "Settlement" and work on the module 3D Stability will be started. The program is modular and may therefore easily be further improved and developed. Initially a user interface for 2D/3D settlement analysis will be made. Responsible: Hans Petter Jostad (NGI)

C. Development of Wizard Soil profiles
Develop logic and content for a 3D data model. Study the possibilities provided by GeoFuture and develop a system which can deal with the requirements in the different levels of Wizard. In 2014 the development of user assistance for settlement will be completed and user assistance for stability will be developed. It will be focus on completing user assistance for ground investigation (laboratory and CPT). Make an example for calculation of settlement in 1D, 2D and 3D which can be published. Test and conclude where assistance is needed and where it is not. A statistical module will be added to the Soil profile module in 2016. Responsible: Suzanne Lacasse (NGI)

D. Open data modell with 3-D data representation
One of the central elements in a 3D/4D integrated solution for geotechnical engineering is the management of data flow from ground investigation to calculations, and the use of the result to create a subsurface model or as input to geotechnical calculations. In GeoFuture, it is important to document who did what and the parameters used and thought process in a particular calculation. Time is also important as both parameters and results are time-dependent as more information becomes available. To achieve this, a data structure that is easy to access and understand is essential, together with objects and their relations, including attributes and necessary metadata. The ground layers are to be represented in 3D and include all the attributes and parameters that are relevant for the geotechnical calculations and expertise provided by GeoFuture. The project in 2014 will require input from practicing geotechnical engineers to ensure that terminology, object description, relationships and attributes are correctly included in the model. The decisions made must also take into account the requirement for the 3D calculations that will ultimately constitute GeoFuture.

E. Effective stress soil model
PhD student Jon Rønningen is doing this activity as his PhD at NTNU. Responsible: Steinar Nordal (NTNU)

F. Bearing capacity module
Programming of a new module for Bearing Capasity, including user interface. Implementation of more formulas in the module and implementation of 3D FEM. Responsible: Øyvind Torgersrud (NGI)

G. Testing of the GeoFuture developed prototypes
Testing of the prototypes developed in projects A-F, later in 2016 also activities H-J. Responsible: Michael Huber (Norconsult)

H. Piles
Further development and programming of software code GeoSuite Piles. Phase I Improved user friendliness, improved documentation of input parameters, integrated software with capacity of single piles as well as pile groups. Responsible: Steffen Giese (Multiconsult)

I. 3D Excavations
Programming of a new module for 2D and 3D analyses of excavations. Phase I will emphasize the development of a 2D model with codes for analysis of strutted excavations. This will lead into the development of a full 3D analysis model in Phase II. Responsible: Hans Petter Jostad (NGI)

J. Run-out distance for slide debris
Programming of a new module for estimates of run-out distance of slide debris from quick clay slide. Phase I will implement already available empirical methods from the literature, corresponding to the work carried out and reported in the NIFS project. Responsible: Vikas Thakur (NTNU/NPRA)
