Description ReSlope is an interactive, design-oriented, program for geosynthetic-reinforced slopes. For a given problem including geosynthetic strength, reduction factors, and design safety factors, it produces the optimal layout (length and spacing) of reinforcement layers. It is specifically developed for geosynthetics. It is geared towards the design (not analysis) of reinforced slopes with simple geometry. It does not consider surficial stability; it assumes the reinforcement can develop full long-term strength at its front end. The current version 3 is an outgrowth of version 1.0 which was developed for the US Army Corps of Engineers (WES). Input data includes properties of each of the soils involved (reinforced, retained and foundation soil), slope surface geometry, surcharge loads, pore water pressure data, seismic coefficients, soil-geosynthetic interaction coefficients, partial safety factors and ultimate tensile strength of a selected geosynthetic, and overall safety factors. Input data is checked for consistency. Help commands and default values are built-in. The program conducts a design to yield the optimum reinforcement layout (length and spacing) to ensure satisfactory internal stability (tied-back and compound modes of failure using log-spiral surfaces that emerge along the slope face) and external stability (direct sliding using two-wedge mechanism and deepseated global stability using Bishop's circle). The user may also specify manually the elevations of geosynthetic layers. The results are displayed numerically and graphically. A summary report, including tabulated data and graphics, can be sent directly to printer. For details of analyses and comparisons with case histories, see: Leshchinsky et al. (1995), "Unified design approach to geosynthetic reinforced slopes and segmental walls," Geosynthetics International, Vol. 2, No. 5, pp. 845-881.
