SlopeFE Features

 

 

  • New model wizard enables the user to input ground sections easily

  • Slope data files can also be imported

  • Automatic generation of finite element mesh for steady state seepage analysis

  • Submerged or partially submerged slopes can be analysed

  • Any combination of reinforcement, consisting of horizontal geotextiles or horizontal or inclined soil nails, rock bolts or ground anchors, can be specified. The restoring moment contributed by the reinforcement is calculated according to BS8006

  • Groundwater boundary conditions can be fixed head, fixed flow, phreatic or no-flow. Boundary conditions can be set along lines or at individual nodes allowing a lot of flexibility

  • Permeabilities for each material can be set, allowing a more realistic representation of pore pressures in the ground than previously possible in Slope

  • External forces can be applied to the ground surface to represent building loads or strut forces in excavations

  • Output includes plotting of pore pressures and other water data, location of the phreatic surface, and display of the analysed slip circles with their factors of safety against failure
