Applicable Software

 

Designed to simulate stability of a 3D rock slope in which global failure can develop as a combination of slip on pre-existing joints and fracturing of rock bridges. Download selected abstracts and our TAP leaflet.

  • Geometry can be imported using AutoCAD DXF format
  • Model results can be displayed and manipulated in 3D
  • The rock mass is represented as a Synthetic Rock Mass (SRM) model
  • Multiple built-in rock types property library
  • Realistic representation of deformation and fracturing of brittle rock for relevant stress conditions
  • In situ stresses may be specified
