Slope Stability Software for Soft Soil EngineeringThe safety and stability of the primary sea and river dikes is essential for the Netherlands since over half the population lives below sea level. In total, 3,500 kilometres of primary dikes and over 100,000 kilometres of other embankments keep the country from flooding. The stability for the majority of the dikes and embankments has been checked for the past 75 years, using methods and tools developed by GeoDelft, the leading Dutch Institute in this field. In 2002 GeoDelft founded Delft GeoSystems.[img][/img]Improved river dike sectionThrough Delft GeoSystems these tools are now available in English for the International GeoEngineering community. Delft GeoSystems tools come with a comprehensive manual and extensive validation and verification reports. Technical support and updates are available free of charge for a period of 3 months. In addition, annual support contracts are available, which include updates.MStab is a slope stability package for soft soils. Delft GeoSystems’ tools follow best practice, and are developed according to modern software standards; therefore they are user-friendly and easy to learn.

For example, settlements can be introduced using the MSettle program. In this manner, safety analyses for various (settled) construction stages can be performed.

Reliability analysis shows how variations in strength and water loads affect the factor of safety. One can easily switch between a partial factors concept and a probabilistic analysis. Besides input of the actual parameter distribution, one can use the defaults for an approximate analysis without additional input.

The Uplift module allows for the safety analysis of river embankments under the influence of changing water levels in aquifers. This may result in the uplift of the hinterland, a mechanism causing numerical difficulties in most FEM approaches.

The Watex program from the Delft GeoSystems suite allows for fast analysis, resulting in time dependant water pressure distributions that can be imported into MStab.
