Import RS3 File

The Import RS3 File option allows you to import an RS3 file into the RocSlope file.

To import an RS3 file:

  1. Select: File > Import > Import RS3 File Import RS3 Icon
  2. You will see an Open File dialog, allowing you to select a file. Select and open the desired RS3 file (supports extension with: *.rs3v3, *.rs3v3model, *.rs3v2, *.rs3dmodel).
  3. After importing the RS3 file, you should verify that the geometry, materials, supports, etc. have been correctly imported.

The following entities and properties can be imported:

  • Geometry (any entities and assigned Material Properties)
  • Material Properties
    • Unit Weight
    • Groundwater
  • Groundwater
    • Boreholes
      • Borehole Water Table and Borehole entities and borehole properties defined in Groundwater > Borehole Manager
    • Water Table entities from Groundwater > Add Water Surface
    • Piezometric Surface entities and properties defined in Groundwater > Add Water by Location
    • Water Grid entities and properties defined in Groundwater > Add Water Pressure Grid
  • Loading
    • Seismic Loading
    • Load entities from Loading > Add Load
    • Surface Load entities from Loading > Add Loads to Selected
  • Support
    • Bolt Properties defined in Support > Define Bolt Properties
      • Bolt Properties are not completely equivalent, so can only import the following types:
        • End Anchored is like Mechanically Anchored
          • Force Application
          • Anchor Capacity
          • Default values are used for missing parameters:
            • Tensile Capacity
            • Plate Capacity
          • Use Bolt Orientation Efficiency = False
          • Use Shear Capacity = False
        • Grouted Tieback is like Grouted Dowel
          • Force Application
          • Use Bolt Orientation Efficiency = False
          • Tensile Capacity
          • Use Shear Capacity and Shear Capacity
          • Use Compression Capacity and Compression Capacity
          • Plate Capacity
          • Bond Strength
          • Material Dependent
          • Use Percent of Length and Percent of Length (or Length)
        • Soil Nail is like Cable Bolt
          • Force Application
          • Use Bolt Orientation Efficiency = False
          • Tensile Capacity
          • Use Shear Capacity and Shear Capacity
          • Use Compression Capacity and Compression Capacity
          • Plate Capacity
          • Bond Strength
          • Material Dependent
        • Design Factors apply in the same way
    • Bolt Pattern entities from Support > Add Bolts
    • Surface Bolt Pattern entities and properties from Support > Add Bolts to Selected Surface
  • Sensor Data
    • Data imported from File > Import > Import Sensor Data > Import IDS Radar Data
    • Data imported from File > Import > Import Sensor Data > Import IDS Radar Live Data
    • Data imported from File > Import > Import Sensor Data > Import Groundprobe Data
    • Data imported from File > Import > Import Sensor Data > Import Tre Altamira Data
    • Data imported from File > Import > Import Sensor Data > Import 3vGeomatics Data
    • Data imported from File > Import > Import Sensor Data > Import Reutech Data
    • Data imported from File > Import > Import Sensor Data > Import Maptek Data
  • Joint Properties
    • Joint Properties defined in Materials > Joints > Define Joint Properties
    • Joint Properties are not completely equivalent, so can only import the following Failure Criterion types (which translate to Shear Strength Model in RocSlope):
      • None will by imported to RocSlope as Mohr-Coulomb with Cohesion = 0 and Phi = 0 (i.e., provides zero shear strength)
      • Mohr-Coulomb
        • Peak Cohesion translates to Cohesion
        • Peak Friction Angle translates to Friction Angle
      • Barton-Bandis
        • JCS
        • JRC
        • Residual Friction Angle is the same as Phir
      • Material Dependent with Joint Coefficient = 1 is equivalent to Material Dependent with no overridden values
      • Waviness = 0
      • Water Pressure Distribution
        • Groundwater Pore Pressure checked is the same as Water Pressure Distribution = Material Dependent (with no Additional Pressure)
        • Groundwater Pore Pressure unchecked is the same as Water Pressure Distribution = Dry (with no Additional Pressure)
        • Additional Pressure > Pressure is the same as Water Distribution = Uniform (with no Groundwater Pore Pressure)
        • Additional Pressure > Apply using Piezometer Surface is the same as Water Distribution = Water Surface (with no Groundwater Pore Pressure)
        • Any other selection is not supported and Water Pressure Distribution is set to Material Dependent (by default)
    • Joint Surfaces
      • Joint Surface entities from Materials > Joints > Add Joint Surface
      • Applied Property (Joint Property)
      NOTE: Joint edge conditions (i.e., Close Joint Edge, Open Joint Edge) from RS3 are not applicable to RocSlope
