SoilVision has championed 3D conceptual design and analysis of slope stability, groundwater flow, stress/deformation, contaminant transport, thermal flows in saturated/unsaturated soils, and coupled processes for geotechnical engineers and hydrogeologists.

Their topics include fuzzy rock mass rating: soft-computing-aided preliminary stability analysis of weak rock slopes, geophysical surveys in engineering geology investigations with field examples, determining the cyclic properties of silty sands, using groundwater flow modeling to investigate land subsistence in the Konya Closed Basin in Turkey, and integrating urban planning and natural hazards for a resilient city.
Therefore, the present study had as objective to propose a simple method that incorporates the groundwater flow in the monthly estimate of the water availability (OHtotal), based on the general water balance equation in studying areas where the hydrologic information is little or nonexistent, and it was applied in a micro basin in Pereira (Colombia) where the aquifer system of Pereira-Dosquebradas underlays; which is an alternate water supply source.
