Description Unwedge (3.0) is a 3D stability analysis and visualization program for underground excavations in rock containing intersecting structural discontinuities. Safety factors are calculated for potentially unstable wedges and support requirements can be modeled using various types of pattern and spot bolting and shotcrete. The procedure is to create a model, perform a safety factor analysis, place reinforcement and interpret the results. The Windows-based interface provides a graphical environment for data entry and visualization that simplifies the analysis and design process. Popup windows allow for entry and modification of model parameters, and the editing tools provide a method for performing parametric studies. The graphical data interpreter provides a complete set of tools, including 3D animation, for the display of wedges surrounding the excavation. It provides enhanced support models for bolts, shotcrete and support pressures, the ability to optimize tunnel orientation and an option to look at different combinations of three joint sets based on a list of more than three joint sets. It uses a new analysis engine based on Goodman and Shi's block theory, which includes the ability to incorporate induced stress around the excavation and the effect on stability, new strength models such as Barton-Bandis and Power Curve, and the ability to improve the scaling and sizing of wedges.
