Slide 6.0 is the only slope stability software with built-in finite element groundwater seepage analysis for steady state or transient conditions. Flows, pressures and gradients are calculated based on user defined hydraulic boundary conditions. Seepage analysis is fully integrated with the slope stability analysis or can be used as a standalone module.
Slide 6.0 has extensive probabilistic analysis capabilities – you may assign statistical distributions to almost any input parameters, including material properties, support properties, loads, and water table location. The probability of failure/reliability index is calculated, and provides an objective measure of the risk of failure associated with a slope design. Sensitivity analysis allows you to determine the effect of individual variables on the safety factor of the slope.
Slide offers no less than 17 different material strength models for rock and soil including Mohr-Coulomb, Anisotropic and Generalized Hoek-Brown. Support types include tieback, end anchored, soil nail, micro pile and geotextile. Back analysis allows you to determine the required support force for a given safety factor. Advanced search algorithms simplify the task of finding the critical slip surface with the lowest safety factor.
