‘Open Secret’ Advantages of the Shear Strength Reduction Approach in Slope Stability Analysis

Shear Strength Reduction (SSR) allows numerical methods, such as the finite element method (FEM), to determine the factor of safety of a slope. Although SSR analysis is not the panacea to every slope stability problem, it offers advantages that must place it, at a minimum, on par with traditional limit equilibrium methods. We hope that the points briefly outlined in this article, convince you to apply the approach much more regularly.

Despite the challenges of having to learn new software, tools, and processes, these students were able to develop new features and applications that will improve Rocscience products across user experience, accessibility, functionality.
