Deterministic Analysis Overview

In a Deterministic analysis, it is assumed that all input parameters are "exactly" known (e.g. wedge plane orientations, shear strength, etc.), and SWedge computes the factor of safety (FS) for a single wedge.

The general procedure for carrying out a Deterministic Analysis with SWedge is as follows.

  1. Select Analysis Type

    Set the Analysis Type to Deterministic in the Project Settings dialog.

  2. Enter Input Data

    In the Input Data dialog, enter the data as described in the following topics.
  3. Compute

    The Deterministic Analysis is computed when you select OK (or Apply) in the Input Data dialog, or when support is added or modified.

  4. View Analysis Results

    After the analysis is computed, the Sidebar will display a summary of results (factor of safety, wedge weight, etc.). A complete listing of all analysis input and output data, can be found in the Info Viewer.
