Version 7.014

WATER PRESSURE

  • Added option in Input Data dialog for specifying %Filled or %Slope Height for Custom Water Pressure Distribution. This allows users to specify a uniform custom pressure magnitude over a partial area of the plane.
  • Added Advanced Joint Application option to specify the joint planes on which the selected Joint Water Pressure is applied.
  • Added additional water pressure information in the Info Viewer. Detailed joint water information including the average pressure, force, line of thrust, and pressure polygons can be obtained from the Water Pressure/Forces section of the Info Viewer.

Version 7.010

BOLTS

  • Added active and passive bolt forces to the list of Sensitivity Analysis options
  • Added bolt property Probabilistic Analysis functionality
  • Added User Defined Bolt Type to bolt properties

Version 7.008

BATCH COMPUTE

  • Compute several Deterministic, Probabilistic, and/or Combinations analysis models using saved SWedge model files. Quickly generate results for several SWedge model files (.swd, .swd7) through Batch Compute feature.
  • Option to add SWedge model files to File Queue individually and/or from a folder.
  • Option to output results as text file (.txt) or Excel (.xlsx) format for viewing and data postprocessing.

AUTOMATE FROM EXCEL

  • Compute several Deterministic, Probabilistic, or Combinations analysis cases using preprocessed Excel input data. Quickly generate results for several SWedge inputs through Automate from Excel feature.
  • Option to add Excel input files to File Queue individually and/or from a folder.
  • Option to output results as text file (.txt) or Excel (.xlsx) format for viewing and data postprocessing.

Version 7.007

IMPORT FROM DIPS

  • Support for Dips version 8 files (.dips8) with Import From Dips option.

Version 7.001

NEW BOLT MODELS FROM UNWEDGE

  • Define Bolt Properties from the following types: Mechanically Anchored, Grouted Dowel, Cable Bolt, Split Set, Swellex and Simple Bolt Force
  • Option to use bolt Shear Strength instead when the bolt is in the right deformation mode
  • Option to apply Bolt Orientation Efficiency factor calculated from the Cosine Tension/Shear or Linear Tension/Shear method
  • Bolt Model (Active/Passive bolts) is now associated with Bolt Property instead of each individual bolt

BENCH DESIGN RESULTS

  • Mean Wedge Volume of Failed Wedges Plot
  • Cumulative Mean Wedge Volume of Failed Wedges Plot

NEW PONDED WATER MODELS

  • Apply Ponded Water Pressure to the Slope and/or Upper Slope by specifying the depth of ponded water
  • Define Slope Face Type from the following types: Pervious and Impervious
  • Model Joint Water in conjunction with Ponded Water
