SLIDE 3.0 Support Conversion

In Slide2 3.0, a very simple support model was used. If a Slide2 3.0 model with support, is read into Slide2 4.0 (or later versions), the Slide2 3.0 support will be automatically converted to the Slide2 4.0 support types, as follows:

Proportional Loading Method

If the support Loading Method = Proportional, in a Slide2 3.0 model, the support will automatically be converted to the Grouted Tieback model, in Slide2 4.0. The parameters will be converted as follows:

Slide2 4.0

Slide2 3.0

Support Type = Grouted Tieback

Loading Method = Proportional

Tensile Capacity

Maximum Load

Bond Strength

Maximum Load / Bonded Length

Bonded Length

Bonded Length

Plate Capacity

Maximum Load

Out-of Plane Spacing = 1

(Maximum Load already normalized)

Force Application = Active

(Force Application = Active)

Constant Loading Method

If the support Loading Method = Constant, in a Slide2 3.0 model, the support will automatically be converted to the End Anchored model, in Slide2 4.0. The parameters will be converted as follows:

Slide2 4.0

Slide2 3.0

Support Type = End Anchored

Loading Method = Constant

Anchor Capacity

Maximum Load

Out-of Plane Spacing = 1

(Maximum Load already normalized)

Force Application = Active

(Force Application = Active)

In addition, the Bolt Length in Slide2 4.0 will be automatically converted to the (Original Bolt Length – Bonded Length) from Slide2 3.0. Although the new bolt length will be shorter (if the original Bonded Length was greater than zero), the effect on the model will be exactly the same as in Slide2 3.0.
