Advantages of the SSR approach, new features in RS2 and more



Advantages of the SSR Approach

Shear Strength Reduction (SSR) allows numerical methods such as the finite element method (FEM) to determine the factor of safety (FoS) of a slope. It offers advantages that place it on par with traditional limit equilibrium methods and this article outlines why we should use the approach more regularly.

New Pile Supports in

Modelling piles in RS2 just got easier with the new dedicated Pile Support Type. Users can now simply enter the pile properties and
out-of-plane spacing and RS2 will take care of the rest.
