JTDist is a utility program for creating user-defined synthetic joint sets, and saving the data as a Dips file.

JTDist can be run by:

  • Double-clicking on the jtdist.exe program in your Dips installation folder, or
  • Through the Start menu, select Start > Programs > Rocscience > Dips > Utilities > JTDist

You will see the following JTDist dialog, in which you can define:

  • Up to five distinct joint sets (by entering a mean dip and dip direction, standard deviation, and joint quantity for each set)
  • Create a random background of joint data
  • Apply error to the generated joint set data (normal, uniform, or roundoff)

 JTDist Utility Program

After entering the parameters, select Save File in the JTDist dialog. This will generate the synthetic data and allow you to save it as a Dips file (i.e., a file with a . dip extension readable by Dips).

A tutorial for the JTDist program is available by selecting the Help button in the JTDist dialog, and then selecting the Tutorial button. The tutorial is also available by double-clicking on the jtdisttut.pdf file in your Dips installation folder.
