Slope Stability – Slope stability analysis ( 4.00 KB )

The program analyses the stability of generally layered soil slopes.

It is used mainly for stability checks of embankments, earth cuts and anchored sheeting structures. The slip surface is considered as circular (the Bishop, Petterson or the Spencer method) or polygonal (the Sarma or Spencer method).

Main features

  • Verification analysis can be performed employing EN 1997-1, LRFD or classical approach (limit states, factor of safety)
  • EN 1997 – option to choose partial factors based on National Annexes
  • EN 1997 – option to choose all design approaches, consider design situations
  • Simple input of layer geometry
  • Build-in database of soils and rocks
  • Fast and reliable optimization of circular and polygonal slip surfaces
  • Arbitrary number of surcharges (strip, trapezoidal, concentrated loading)
  • Arbitrary number of anchors
  • Presence of water modelled through ground water table or using pore pressure isolines
  • Rapid draw down analysis
  • Handles successive construction of slopes within one analysis task
  • Simple modelling of rigid bodies
  • Earthquake effects
  • Analyses methods - Morgerstein, Janbu
  • Output of slip surfaces computed during optimisation
  • Handles foliation of soils
  • Geo-reinforcement may be included
  • Analysis in effective and total parameters of soils
  • Arbitrary number of analyses within one stage of construction
  • Restrictions on the slip surface optimization may be defined
  • Analysis according to the theory of limit states and safety factor
  • DXF import and export
