Importing Monitoring Data to Slide3

1. Introduction

This tutorial will demonstrate how to view IDS Radar Data and will provide an example where the imported IDS Radar Data can be used to validate the results of Slide3.

2. Open Slide3 Model

Select File > Recent > Tutorials and read in the file IDS - Starting File from the installation folder. Model Starting View

3. Results

Calculator Icon Select Analysis > Compute

Results Tab Select the Results tab to view the failure surface on the model.

Turn on the contours by selecting the Show Contours Contoured Model Icon option on the toolbar. The model should look as follows with the Janbu safety factor close to 1.00.

Notice that the imported surface matches the surface of the model. Press OK to import the data set.

Notice that despite importing the whole data set, we are only truly interested in the small hot region of the contours. In this case, this is the region with the most negative displacement. We can apply a filter to remove the points with the small displacements from the set.

Select to Import IDS data again and hit OK for the warning about removing the old set. In the filter value group in the top right, drag the right slider until the surface is reduced to only points with significant displacement.

Edit Point Cloud dialog

Select OK and the surface will be imported.

If you wish to change the appearance of the imported surface, there are a variety of options available in the bottom left Properties pane when you select the imported surface (last item) from the Visibility pane.

It is already clear that there is a significant overlap between the greatest displacements measured and the failure surface predicted by Slide3. Offset the failure surface slightly to more clearly see this overlap.

Notice how closely the Hot sections of the imported surface match the results from Slide3. This shows a very close match between the predicted surface from Slide3 and measured results.

This concludes the Import Monitoring Data to Slide3 (IDS GeoRadar) tutorial.
