We are pleased to announce our presence at the
AFTES International Congress,
"Building Underground for the Future",
6-8 October 2008, Monaco, France
.

MidasGTS, the new generation software for 3D geotechnical and tunnel engineering, will be presented with many new features and show case examples for TBM, NAT and pipe umbrella examples.

All conference attendees and interested are welcome to join us for presentation and discussions at our booth.

For further information please feel free to contact Dr. Olivier Gastebled at +31152763250 and

 MidasGTS  is a Geotechnical and Tunnel analysis System,based on state-of-the-art finite element and graphical technology.
midas GTS enables the engineers to intuitively generate complex geotechnical models. Outstanding geometrical modelling and meshing features are complemented by powerful analysis capabilities and a fast Multi-frontal solver able to handle large 3D models.
midas GTS has been scrutinized by a strict QA/QC system ensuring a high standard of quality. midas GTS defines a new paradigm for tunnel engineering and geotechnical structures.
