Description Phase2 (8.0) is a 2D elasto-plastic finite element stress analysis and support design program for underground or surface excavations in rock or soil. It includes finite element slope stability and finite element groundwater seepage analysis fully integrated within the program. Complex, multi-stage models can be created and analyzed, e.g. tunnels in weak rock, underground powerhouse caverns, open pit mines, slopes, embankments, MSE stabilized earth structures, etc. Material modeling options include linear elastic, transversely isotropic, orthotropic, Duncan-Chang hyperbolic, Mohr-Coulomb, Generalized Hoek-Brown, Cam-Clay, Drucker-Prager, discrete strength function, and explicit modeling of rock joints or structural interfaces. Analysis features for modeling jointed rock allow you to automatically generate discrete joint or fracture networks according to a variety of statistical models. Liner elements can be applied in the modeling of shotcrete, concrete, steel set systems, retaining wall structures and multi-layer composite liners. Liner design tools include support capacity plots which allow you to determine the safety factor of reinforced liners. Pile walls and geosynthetics can be modeled using a combination of liner and joint elements which allow slip along an interface. Bolt types include end anchored, fully bonded, cable bolts, split sets and grouted tiebacks. Loading options include in-situ stress (constant or gravitational), distributed, line and seismic. CAD based data entry allows interactive geometry definition, editing and import / export of DXF files. One-click automatic mesh generation can be fully customized. Geometry cleanup and mesh quality checks can be applied. Steady state, saturated / unsaturated finite element groundwater seepage analysis can be used to determine groundwater pore pressure, flow and gradient, based on user defined hydraulic boundary conditions and permeability. Finite element slope stability using the shear strength reduction (SSR) method can be used to determine the safety factor of a slope with Mohr-Coulomb or Hoek-Brown materials. Slope models can be imported / exported between Slide and Phase2, allowing comparison of limit equilibrium and finite element results. Probabilistic finite element analysis using the Rosenblueth point estimate method (PEM) allows you to define statistical variability of material properties, field stress or joint properties. New 64-bit and multi-core parallel processing options can solve larger and more complex models in shorter times.
