Description SVSlope performs classic limit equilibrium slope analysis by the method of slices or newer stress-based methods in 2D or 3D. Advanced searching is implemented to determine the correct location of the critical slip surface. It includes probability analysis as well as integration with other packages in SVOffice. Key features: Spatial variability of material properties aids in improving the calculation of factors of safety. Stochastic analysis such as Monte Carlo, Latin Hypercube, and the Alternative Point Estimation Method (APEM) allow the end-user to determine normal distributions of the factor of safety as well as the probability of failure. Coupled unsaturated steady-state or transient seepage analysis is available when coupled with SVFlux. Critical slip surface searching algorithms including dynamic programming and Greco search methods. One- or two-way sensitivity analysis allows the generation of a contoured surface of the factor of safety based on the relationship between two input variables. New finite element based slope stability methods. 14 different analysis methods including classic method of slices such as Bishop, Janbu, Spencer, Morgenstern-Price, GLE, and others. Support for 14 different soil strength models including Mohr-Coulomb, Hoek-Brown, Undrained, Anisotropic, Bilinear, Frictional-Undrained, and four unsaturated shear strength strength models. Multiple unsaturated soil strength models allow for more extensive analysis of unsaturated soil conditions. Support for reinforced slopes. Support for the Hong Kong soil nail equation. Representation of dry or wet tension cracks. Visualization of results.
