Block Information

After blocks and kinematics are computed, information about all or specific blocks can be displayed in the Block Information pane. To view Block Information:

  2. Select Interpret > Block Information block information icon

The results for each block are displayed in a table format.

Block Information Pane
Block Information Pane

The following columns are available:

  • ID: Unique block IDs for all valid blocks
  • Color: Corresponds to the color of the block which depends on the Block Colors option selected (e.g., Random Colors, Active Contour, etc.)
  • Removable?
  • FS < Design FS
  • Failure Iteration
  • Factor of Safety
  • Volume
  • Weight
  • Driving Force
  • Resisting Force
  • Failure Mode
  • Sliding Direction Trend
  • Sliding Direction Plunge
  • Required Support Pressure
  • Failure Depth
  • Min. Factor of Safety
  • Max. Support Pressure
  • Max. Failure Depth
  • Probability of Failure
  • Slope Face Area
  • # of Joints

The default visibility of columns is automatically set depending on:

Manage Columns

The visibility of any of the columns listed above can be toggled by selecting the Manage Columns Manage Columns icon button at the top of the Block Information pane and then by checking/unchecking the column names in the left pane.

Filter Options

Filtering can be applied to blocks viewed in the viewport and listed in the Block Information pane by selecting the Filter Options Filter Options button at the top of the Block Information pane.

Edit Filters

A handful of quick filter controls are available in the Edit Filter section in the left pane.

The quick filters include:

  • Failure Iteration (if Successive Failure is selected in Project Settings)
  • Factor of Safety
  • Volume
  • Failure Depth
  • Weight
  • Support Pressure
  • Failure Modes

Enter range values in the edit boxes or slide the sliders to specify the inclusive range (i.e., >= min and <= max) of the numeric quick filters.

For the Failure Iteration quick filter, if there are N number of Failure Iterations, then the filter ranges from 1 to N + 1 Failure Iterations. The N + 1 Failure Iteration represents blocks that are stable. When viewing the Results Set of Failed Blocks (FS < Design FS), the filter ranges from 1 to N Failure Iterations since there are no stable blocks.

The Full Filter Editor allows users to define other filters not included in the quick filters or create more advanced filters using combinations of conditional statements to query the column data.

To create a filter:

  1. Select the Full Filter Editor button in the Edit Filters section.
  2. In the Filter Editor dialog:
    • Click the Add add icon button to Add Condition.
    • To define the Condition:
      • Select the Column Name (e.g., Factor of Safety) to query
      • Select the Operator (e.g., Is less than)
      • Select the Operand (e.g., 1)
    • Select the drop down beside the Add add icon button to Add Condition, Add Group, or Add Custom Expression.
    • Any number of Conditions or Groups can be added which can be treated as "And" or "Or" statements.
  3. Click OK to finish defining the filter and apply to the results.

When a filter is applied:

  • The bottom of the Block Information pane will show the applied filter as checked.
  • The listing of blocks in Block Information will only show blocks meeting the filter criteria.
  • The visibility of blocks in the 3D View will only show blocks meeting the filter criteria.

To edit the filter:

  • Select the Full Filter Editor button in the Edit Filters section, or
  • Select the Edit Filter button at the bottom right of the Block Information pane.

To clear the filter:

  • Select the Clear Current Filter button from the Edit Filter section, or
