Dips

Kinematic Analysis

Identify critical zones, vectors, and intersections on a stereonet overlay with the kinematic analysis of planar and wedge sliding, or direct and flexural toppling failure modes. Export kinematic results to excel, containing critical vectors and intersections for all failure modes.

Jointing Analysis

Three built-in analysis options: Joint Spacing to calculate true or apparent spacing between joints within a set, RQD Analysis for assessing Rock Quality Designation, and Joint Frequency for counting the occurrence of joints along each 1D distance interval, on a linear or borehole traverse.

  • Dynamic Data Filters

    Create multiple data filter queries in the same Dips file, display dynamically filtered data and analysis results in any view (e.g., Grid Data, 2D Stereonet Plot, 3D Stereonet, Chart). Quickly create a new Dips file with a selected filter.

  • Kinematic Sensitivity

    Vary kinematic properties (slope dip, slope dip direction, friction angle, lateral limits) when analyzing sliding and toppling failure modes, to visualize their effects on the number of kinematically critical vectors and intersections.

  • 2D Stereonets View Templates

    The View Templates feature allows you to efficiently save and load custom Plot Options and Display Settings to and from any Stereonet Plot View.
