2D Finite Element Analysis of a Reinforced Soil Embankment Constructed on a Cellular Foundation Mattress

This article presents a brief summary of a 2D finite element analysis carried out using RS2 to model a proposed reinforced soil embankment supported on a cellular foundation mattress. The analysis is based on a series of analyses carried out by Remedy Geotechnics Limited for a project involving the construction of a temporary haul road and piling platforms on formations of soft alluvial clay to facilitate the construction of a new viaduct for a major UK rail project.

Getting the Best out of Your Data with RSData

Good data quality leads to better decision-making and greater confidence in the decisions made. Good data decreases risk and can result in consistent improvements in results. The purpose of this short article is to explain how RSData (and its predecessor RocData) contributes to generating quality input data and choosing appropriate strength and constitutive models for programs such as RS2, RS3, and Settle3D.

‘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.

New Pile Supports in RS2

RS2 has improved the ability to model piles using the new dedicated Pile Support Type. With this new dedicated pile support type, the user simply enters the pile properties and out-of-plane spacing. RS2 will take care of the rest.
