Published on: Nov 29, 2019 Updated on: Jul 21, 2022 2 minutes read

Rocscience Inc. is pleased to announce the inclusion of Tensar Uniaxial (UX) Geogrids in the new Slide2. Easy to handle and install, Tensar UX Geogrids are used for high-strength soil reinforcement in wall and slope applications.

Tensar® Uniaxial (UX) Geogrids, from Tensar International Corporation, are manufactured from select grades of high-density polyethylene (HDPE) resins that are highly oriented and are designed to resist elongation (creep) when subjected to heavy loads for long periods of time. These geogrids are also highly resistant to installation damage as well as long-term chemical or biological degradation.

This partnership with Tensar means Rocscience will continue to deliver to its customers the most comprehensive and practical solutions through its offering of Slide2 and Slide3. Slide2 is the world’s most powerful, user-friendly 2D slope stability analysis program using the Limit Equilibrium Method. Slide3 is a tool that allows geotechnical engineers to calculate the Factor of Safety of complex 3D slope stability geometries that 2D models cannot fully simulate.

On the integration, Rocscience President Dr. Thamer Yacoub had this to say:

This addition to Slide2’s collection of pre-defined support types once again meets our customers’ need for comprehensive and practical 2D slope stability analysis solutions for rock and soil. We know our customers want programs that are easy to use so they can focus on what’s important—the analysis.

And as Tensar put it:

Tensar is pleased to have its Uniaxial (UX) Geogrids featured as support options within the latest version of Slide. Tensar UX Geogrids provide high-tensile strength at low strains for use in mechanically stabilized earth walls and reinforced soil slopes, backed by the most thorough quality assurance practices. When you stabilize your vertical earth structure with Tensar UX Geogrids, you can have full confidence that your model is based on technology, experience and expertise that have set the industry standard for more than three decades.
