Slide2 Integration

Slide2 Compute

The Slide2 Compute option allow users to analyze multiple section cuts within Slide3 model. Once Slide2 sections are created in the model, Slide2 Compute option can be used to package sections into a single Slide2 Multi-Group file and the Slide2 compute engine will automatically be invoked to perform a 2D analysis of each section. The results will be read back into Slide3, and the global minimum surfaces and the minimum factors of safety will be displayed on the model in 3D.

  1. Continuing with the last section, there should be some Slide2 sections in the view.
  2. Select: Analysis > Slide2 Integration > Slide2 Compute from the menu or select Slide2 Compute Slide Compute Icon from the toolbar.
  3. If the project has not been saved, it will prompt you to save the project first.
  4. Select Sections to Compute dialog will pop up to select sections to compute.
  5. Select OK to start Slide2 compute engine and compute the Slide2 file.
  6. Once Slide2 compute engine has finished, Slide3 will update all the sections with 2D global minimum surfaces. Switch to Results tab to view 2D surfaces.

Refresh Slide2 Results

The computed Slide2 file can be modified and recomputed using Slide2. Once the file has been modified, you can use Refresh Slide2 Results option to reload the 2D global minimum surfaces from Slide2 file and update them in the model.

  1. Once you’ve saved the project, the computed Slide2 file can be found within the 'slide2_compute' folder which is auto-generated when saving the project. I.e. If the Slide3 project name is Project1.slide3m2, then the computed Slide2 file is Project1\slide2_compute\slide2_compute.slmd
  2. You can use Slide2 to open the above Slide2 file, make modifications and recompute using Slide2 Engine. (Warning: modifying the geometry of the model may cause misalignment between the result and the section.)
  3. Go back to Slide3 and select Analysis > Slide2 Integration > Refresh Slide2 Results.
  4. 2D global minimum surfaces should be updated from the modified Slide2 file.

Open Slide2 Modeler

The Slide2 Modeler can be used to open/modify the sections in Slide2 directly from Slide3 for 2D slope stability analysis. Slide2 must be installed to use this feature. Also, the cut sections needs to be computed in order to use this feature.

Note: You need to pick the sections in the visibility tree prior to opening the Slide2 modeler or the Slide2 interpreter.

After creating the desired sections for analysis:

  1. Compute the sections by selecting Analysis > Slide2 Integration > Slide2 Compute or Slide2 Compute Slide Compute Icon from the toolbar.
  2. Select Analysis > Slide2 Integration > Slide2 Modeler Slide Model Icon
  3. Select sections that you would like to open in the Slide2 and press OK.

Open Slide2 Interpret

The Slide2 Interpret can be used to view the 2D slope stability analysis result of the cut sections using Slide2 Interpret. Slide2 Compute must be pressed prior to this function.

  1. Compute the sections by selecting Analysis > Slide2 Integration > Slide2 Compute or Slide2 Compute Slide Compute Icon from the toolbar.
  2. Select Analysis > Slide2 Integration > Slide2 InterpretSlide Interpret Icon
  3. Select sections that you would like to open in the Slide2 Interpret and press OK.

Open Computed Slide2 File Location

Open Computed Slide2 File Location can be used to open the computed Slide2 files from Slide3 model. Select Sections you would like to open and press OK.
