Deterministic Probabilistic Analysis
All modules can perform deterministic analyses as well as a probabilistic analyses except the Pile Bearing Capacity module. With a probabilistic analysis you can take into account variations in material properties and other parameters. Distribution types that can be applied to material properties in a probabilistic analysis include uniform, triangular, exponential, normal, log normal and beta distributions.
Generalised Slope Analysis
Slope stability analysis of generalized soil slopes using Bishop's Modified Method (circular slip surface).
Generalised Non-circular Slip Analysis
Slope stability analysis of soil slopes using the non-vertical slice method proposed by Sarma (non-circular slip). The user interface and analysis options are almost identical to the Generalised Slope Analys module except for the ability to define a slip surface of any general shape.
Tetrahedral Wedge Analysis
Stability analysis of a tetrahedral wedge that may form in a rock slope by the intersection of two planar discontinuities, the slope face, and the upper slope with or without a tension crack in the upper slope. The deterministic analysis mode is supplemented by a probabilistic mode to evaluate the effect that the range of input values have on the factor of safetey (FOS).
Planar Failure in Rock Slopes
Determination of the factor of safety of a planar failure in rock.
Shear Strength of Jointed Rock Masses
Evaluation of the non-linear shear strength strength vs. normal stress failure envelope that exist in rock masses, some granular soils and some dense sands. Analysis output includes instantaneous cohesion and friction values, and the actual shear strength for a given normal stress.
Shear Strength of Rough Joints in Rocks
Evaluation of the shear strength failure envelope for rough joints in rock. Supported theories include those by Ladanyi and Archambault.
Determination of the bearing capacity of piles. The capacity calculations take into account the effects of pile length and diameter, installation type and soil conditions. Analysis output includes pile deformation calculations.
