Datgel has upgraded its CPT reporting software with the launch of the CPT Tool 3 gINT add-on. The company says the development places advanced reporting and analysis capabilities directly in the hands of geotechnical engineers with an array of formula configurations and report generation options unmatched in cone penetration testing.
“Our focus has been on automation and user control,” said Datgel managing director Phil Wade. “Version 3 gives geotechnical engineers faster access to the exact information they need to be effective, defining their own calculations and report parameters by leveraging peerless formulacreation tools in CPT Tool 3 to write formulas for Bentley System’s gINT without having to develop lines of complex VBA code.”
User-definable features include a library of more than 300 customisable log, graph and fence reports that can be modified to capture unique requirements on the day. The ability to create and store a repository of user-defined calculations and reports within the system can be used to create a dynamic workflow over time for highly efficient CPT data processing.
Wade said client feedback from version 2 had been taken into account, including requests for metric units, liquefaction and pile analysis.
“It’s important that geotechnical engineers focus their highly specialised skills on analysis and interpretation,” said Wade. “CPT Tool 3 takes clients beyond having to wrestle with hundreds of Excel spreadsheets and delivers the essential and critical data they need.”
According to Wade, the reporting capabilities included in the upgrade make it possible to compare borehole logs, lab results and CPT data in the same gINT database.
