TSLOPE allows the user to check the possibility of progressive failure, the effect of including driving water pressures and of three-dimensional effects. If you can’t check these things, you don’t know how large your errors might be!
EASE OF USE FEATURES
TSLOPE is a new generation program oriented to modern computers and operating systems that allows the user to readily make repeat runs and to see and save data and plots in standard formats. It can import data from a variety of drawing and geological modelling programs and from existing legacy slope stability programs.
TSLOPE has been designed from the outset to operate as “software as a service”. You do not have to buy it. You are charged for using it and you can easily rebill the cost to your clients making it a source of revenue rather than an expense.
TSLOPE is the slope stability analysis program of the future.
Specific features of TSLOPE
- User can work in 2D or 3D
- Tools for creating simple 3D models from 2D section data
- Automatic generation of 2D sections from a 3D model
- Allows import of data from CAD and geological modelling packages and loads from BIM models. Files types supported include .dxf, .obj, .vtp
Methods of Analysis
- Ordinary Method of Columns (OMC) or Spencer’s method
- The OMC always converges and our 3D solution of Spencer’s method reliably converges with any imbalance in the forces and moments being displayed for the user. Slices or columns with tensile interslice forces are flagged.
- With the OMC, seepage forces can be applied, tension is automatically eliminated and local factors of safety are calculated and displayed in order to warn of progressive failure.
- Allows straight or curved Mohr Coulomb envelopes or Hoek and Brown strength parameters.
Ease of Use Features
- Arbitrary 3D failure surfaces can be defined
- Easy modelling of rock wedges
- Failure surfaces can be limited by layer boundaries, or polygons
- Automatic search for critical failure surfaces in 2D
- Automatic search for the critical seismic coefficient
- Automatic back calculation of failures for all slope cases to show range of strengths required for equilibrium
- Calculation of local factors of safety to indicate areas where progressive failure might initiate
- Inclusion of seepage forces which are omitted in conventional limit equilibrium analyses
- More accurate modelling of surface loads and tie-backs
TSLOPE allows the user to check the possibility of progressive failure and of three-dimensional effects. If you can’t check these things, you’ll never know how important they are!
