The best application for slope stability analysis – Slope Geostru
Is a slope stability analysis software that uses boundary equilibrium methods along with advanced numeric models, such as (Element Discrete Method). The use of Slope is very varied, just do a search on the web to find thousands of calculations carried out with this software. Slope easily faces a very varied case, such as stability analysis of soil or rock, both anisotropic and seismic conditions, reinforcements (walls, piles, sheet walls, active and passive anchors, nails), stability of dams, soil reinforcement, drainage, dynamic analysis.
Slope also includes retrospective back analysis procedures through which it is possible to obtain critical geotechnical parameters.
Slope is a GEOSTRU brand software, which thanks to continuous development investment has made its products available on the international technical market. Articles are published on major technical journals such as: sciencedirect, rivista italiana di geotecnica, etc.
Nowadays, a large variety of software can be found on the web, but only SLOPE simplifies professional work with simple inputs, easy to consult results and exhaustive calculation reports.
The cost of SLOPE is very competitive compared to the main competitors, both for the purchase of the license and for the upgrade program.
Slope stability analysis: The term slope means a portion of the natural slope whose original profile has been modified by artificial interventions relevant with respect to stability. The term landslide refers to a situation of instability affecting natural slopes and involving large volumes of soil.
Introduction to stability analysis
The resolution of a stability problem requires taking into account field equations and constitutive laws. The first ones are equilibrium equations, the second ones describe the behavior of the soil. These equations are particularly complex since the soil is made of multiphase systems, which can be traced to single-phase systems only in dry soil conditions, or analysis in drained conditions.
In most cases we have to deal with a material that if is saturated is at least two-phase, which makes the treatment of the equilibrium equations considerably complicated. Furthermore, it is practically impossible to define a constitutive law of general validity, because the soils have a non-linear behavior already at small strains, are anisotropic, and also their behavior depends not only on the deviatoric stress but also on the normal stress. Because of the above difficulties are introduced simplifying assumptions….
