TNO DIANA BV located in Delft, the Netherlands, and Fine Ltd located in Prague, Czech Republic, have agreed to co-operate in the distribution of analysis software for the geotechnical and tunnel engineering community. Fine Ltd. becomes exclusive distributor of midasGTS, the FE program for 3-D geotechnical and tunnel analysis, in Czech republic, Slovak republic and Poland (MMGEO ). TNO DIANA will add the GEO5 geotechnical analytical tool suite to its product portfolio. Thanks to this co-operation, both parties expect to expand business by making use of each other networks and expertise.

Midas GTS is a fully integrated 3-dimensional geotechnical finite element program that is developed in partnership between TNO DIANA BV and MIDAS IT, South-Korea. The product has been introduced in the European market in 2006 to respond to the growing demand for 3-dimensional analysis allowed by continuous increase in hardware and software performances. Fine Ltd. has a leading position in Czech and Slovak republics with its geotechnical analyses software suite and wishes to expand its offer in term of 3-dimensional modelling and analyses.

GEO5 is a geotechnical software suite with analytical solutions for quick assessment of common geotechnical designs. GEO5 is developed by Fine Ltd. and has over 1500 users in 50 countries. We expect that this user-friendly suite of solutions will complement TNO DIANA FE products in the daily practice of the design office.
