Rocscience Slide v7.0
Slide is the most comprehensive slope stability analysis software available, complete with finite element groundwater seepage analysis, rapid drawdown, sensitivity and probabilistic analysis, and support design. All types of soil and rock slopes, embankments, earth dams, and retaining walls can be analyzed. State of the art CAD capabilities allow you to create and edit complex models very easily.
Slide 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 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 now includes extensive Probabilistic Analysis capabilities for the statistical analysis of slope stability using Monte Carlo or Latin Hypercube simulation techniques. Virtually any input parameter in the model can be defined as a random variable.
Whether your current work requires you to perform a probabilistic analysis or you simply want more confidence in your design, performing a probabilistic analysis will only improve your slope stability analyses.
Probabilistic analyses can also be used for performing a back analysis to determine material properties or groundwater conditions. If you have a slope that has already failed, you can use the failure geometry and the implicit factor of safety (<= 1.0, implied by the failure) to determine material properties or groundwater conditions.
