Slide2 Section Compute

The Slide2 Compute option is added as of Slide3 2019. Once Slide2 sections are created in the model, the Slide2 Compute option can be used to package sections into a single Slide2 Multi-Group file and the Slide2 compute engine will automatically be invoked to perform a 2D analysis of each section. The results will be read back into Slide3, and the global minimum surfaces and the minimum factors of safety will be displayed on the model in 3D.

  1. Use Slide2 Section Creator to create some sections in the model. (For more information on how to create Slide2 section creator, refer to Section Export to Slide)
  2. Select Analysis > Slide2 Compute from the menu or select Slide2 Compute slide2 compute icon from the toolbar.
  3. If the project has not been saved, it will prompt you to save the project first.
  4. Select Sections to Compute dialog will pop up to select sections to compute.
  5. Select OK to start Slide2 compute engine and compute the Slide2 file.
  6. Once Slide2 compute engine has finished, Slide3 will update all the sections with 2D global minimum surfaces. Switch to the Results tab to view 2D surfaces.

Refresh Slide2 Results

The computed Slide2 file can be modified and recomputed using Slide2. Once the file has been modified, you can use Refresh Slide2 Results option to reload the 2D global minimum surfaces from Slide2 file and update them in the model.

  1. Once you’ve saved the project, the computed Slide2 file can be found within the folder that is auto-generated when saving the project. E.g. If you’re project name is Project1.slide3m2, then the computed Slide2 file is Project1\slide2_compute\slide2_compute.slmd
  2. You can use Slide2 to open the above Slide2 file, make modifications and recompute using Slide2 Engine. (Please don’t modify the geometry of the model as it may cause misalignment between the result and the section.)
  3. Go back to Slide3 and select Interpret > Refresh Slide2 Results from the menu or select Refresh Slide2 Results from the toolbar.
  4. 2D global minimum surfaces should be updated from the modified Slide2 file.
