Bubble 3D

This software is designed for simulation of stress increase (ΔP) due to foundation load in subsurface soil layers, and visualization of ground settlement. The results provided by Bubble 3D and its visual presentations are for educational purposes only, and cannot be relied on for a real project. The objective of Bubble 3D is to assist the geotechnical engineer in understanding stress - deformation under the footing by way of graphical presentation. We noted that we do not recommend using the results of settlement estimations provided by Bubble 3D for real projects. however, its results could be used as a general ballpark estimate. Please read this article for details.


Although all efforts have been undertaken to ensure that this software is of the highest possible quality and that the results obtained are correct, the authors do not warrant the functions contained in the program will meet your requirements or that the operation of the program will be uninterrupted or error-free.
