Slide is a 2D limit equilibrium slope stability program for evaluating the safety factor or probability of failure, of circular or non-circular failure surfaces in soil or rock slopes. Slide analyzes the stability of slip surfaces using vertical slice or non-vertical slice limit equilibrium methods. Slide also includes finite element groundwater seepage analysis built right into the program, for both steady state and transient conditions.
