The following filename extensions are used by Slide.
The main Slide model files, created with the Slide Model program, containing all of the boundary, material property, loading and slip surface information.
Slide 7.0 multi-doc file, used for Multi Scenario models. This is a zip archive containing the individual model files.
Slide results file, created after running the Slide Compute program on a .SLI file. These files contain the safety factor and detailed analysis information for slip surfaces, and are used by the Slide Interpret program to view analysis results.
Slide groundwater model files. These files contain only the model information which is applicable to a groundwater analysis. All other model information (e.g. boundaries) is saved in the corresponding .SLI file, which is always saved along with the .SLW file.
Groundwater results file, created after running the Groundwater Compute program. Used by the Slide Interpret program to view groundwater analysis results.
Probabilistic analysis results file. Only created if a probabilistic analysis has been run. Used by the Slide Interpret program to view the probabilistic analysis results.
Slide tools files, used for saving drawing and text annotations added to views in the Slide Interpret program.
Rocscience Auto-Format files, used for saving customized Contour formats. See the Define Auto Format topic.
Pore Water Pressure files, used for importing / exporting water pressure grid data files. See the Water Pressure Grid topic.
Interslice force function files, used for saving user defined interslice force function files, used with the General Limit Equilibrium (GLE) analysis method. See the Interslice Force Function topic for details.
Shear-Normal Strength Function files, used for saving user defined shear / normal strength function files. See the Shear / Normal Strength Function topic.
Anisotropic Strength Function files, used for saving user defined Anisotropic strength function files. See the Anisotropic Strength Function topic.
Support Function Files, used for saving user defined support function files. See the User Defined Support topic.
Permeability Function Files, used for saving user defined permeability function files. See the Define Hydraulic Properties topic.
Discrete Strength Function files, used for saving user defined Discrete Strength function files. See the Discrete Strength Function topic.
AutoCADä Drawing Exchange Format files. These can be used for import / export of Slide model geometry. DXF files can also be used to import Water Pressure Grid files.
Slide 3.0 and 4.0 model files.
Slide 2.0 model files. Can be imported into Slide 3.0 or later versions. See the Importing Slide 2.0 Files topic.
