Acquisition enables subsurface digital twin services

June 6th, 2019, Published in Articles: PositionIT

Bentley Systems has acquired Keynetix, a provider of cloud-based software for capturing, visualising, modelling, and sharing of geotechnical data. The addition of Keynetix software expands its geotechnical offerings and accelerates its vision of enabling subsurface digital twins for infrastructure projects and assets. Subsurface digital twins can be vital for assessing and managing risks in infrastructure projects, and to the planning, design, construction and operations of infrastructure assets. The creation and curation of subsurface digital twins involves modelling the underground environment (geology, hydrology, chemistry, and engineering properties, and the underground infrastructure), and utility networks, structures, and tunnels – and then analysing and simulating the subsurface behaviour. Supplementing borehole reports managed by Bentley’s gINT software, Keynetix’s cloud-based geotechnical knowledge management system captures and manages underground environment information for Bentley’s geotechnical analysis applications, Plaxis and SoilVision. Geotechnical and infrastructure professions will benefit from this continued and expanded leadership, now within Bentley Systems.
