GeoRose 0.5.0 – A Free Geological Rose Diagram and Stereonet Plotting Program

We are happy to announce that GeoRose 0.5.0 is released.

With GeoRose 0.5.0, users are able to plot stereonet diagram with plane data and lineation data for both equal area and equal angle projections, . Users can fully control the style of the diagram as in rose diagram plotting mode.

At the same time, polar area diagram is ruled out in this release. If you use GeoRose for roots directions statistics, please don’t update it to 0.5 version.

Your feedback will be very welcome.

 

Custom p-y curve example in PyPile

Users can customize their p-y curves using JavaScript in PyPile, which provides great flexibility to create p-y curves for any type of soils. The following code is an example to show how to use JavaScript to create p-y curve for stiff clay without free water presence (Reese).

The parameters of this function are specified by users or obtained from current and upper soil layers. The function returns lateral force P based on the deflection y and its user-defined p-y model.

function PyFunction(y, depth, top, bottom, r, r_ave, c, c_ave, phi, e50, k, u0, u1, b, cyclic){
    var P

    var J = 0.5
    var Pu = Math.min((3 + r_ave / c * depth + J / b * depth) * c * b, 9 * c * b)
    var y50 = 2.5 * e50 * b

    if (y < 16 * y50) {
        P = 0.5 * Math.pow(y / y50, 0.25) * Pu
    }
    else {
        P = Pu
    }

    return P
}

PyPile – A free lateral pile analysis program

We are pleased to announce the first release of PyPile 0.1.0. PyPile is a free lateral pile analysis program.

Apart from its ordinary functions available in other software in the market, PyPile comes with some unique functions:

  1. Users can implement custom p-y curve with JavaScript.
  2. Users can customized output Excel charts.
  3. Soil profile with pile sketch can be exported to PNG or SVG image.

PyPile is available here. Please feel free to let me know your thoughts.

GeoRose 0.3.0 Released

I am very happy to announce that GeoRose 0.3.0 now is available. GeoRose 0.3.0 is a completely rewritten version. Now users can completely control their rose diagrams’ displaying style. Supported image export formats extended to PNG, PDF, PS and SVG. Furthermore, transparent diagram background is available. With this function, overlaying rose diagram on top of other image files becomes a piece of cake.

GeoRose – A Geological Rose Diagram Program

GeoRose 0.2.0 is released today. GeoRose is a standalone program, which can generate rose diagram without python dependency.

Currently it can:

  • 1. generate diagram of strike, dip and dip direction.
  • 2. export diagram as png format file.
  • 3. calculate strike from dip direction.

More functions will come soon. It is available at

A free geological rose diagram program coming soon

If you don’t want to code by yourself to draw geology rose diagram like the example shown by my python code, a stand alone program is coming soon to save your time and headaches. Some of the screen copies are posted here to let you know how it looks like. Basically I used the same framework as the one I used in PointLink. I am going to add more functions later in this program to let you have more freedom.
