Defining a Problem
Beginning an analysis is as simple as defining the geometry by drawing regions and lines that identify soil layers. Once drawn, you would choose an analysis method, specify soil properties and pore-water pressures, define reinforcement loads, and create your trial slip surfaces.
Viewing the Results
Once an analysis is solved, the results can be viewed in a variety of ways:
Display the minimum slip surface and factor of safety together, or view each one individually.
View information about the critical slip surface, including the total sliding mass, a free body diagram and a force polygon showing the forces acting on each slice.
Contour the factors of safety, or show plots of computed parameters. The prepare the results for your report by adding labels, axes, and pictures, or export the results into other applications such as Microsoft® Excel® for further analysis.
