Bench Design Tools and Charts

Conduct Bench Design as an extension of RocPlane’s Probabilistic analysis feature. Input design parameters and statistical joint information to optimize the bench slope angle. Calculate required bench width, considering spill width and backbreak distance. Results can be output using a number of different statistical charts including total probability of failure, volume of failed wedges, minimum bench width, and backbreak cell probabilities.

  • Batch Compute

    Save time with the Batch Compute feature which enables you to compute several deterministic and/or probabilistic RocPlane model files (.pln, .pln4) at once and quickly generate results to text or Excel format.

  • Automate from Excel

    Automate a deterministic or probabilistic analysis in RocPlane by reading in various numerical input data from an Excel template, and quickly generating computed results to text or Excel format.

  • Ponded Models

    Apply Ponded Water Pressure to the Slope and/or Upper Face by specifying the depth of ponded water. Plane Water can also be modeled in conjunction with Ponded Water with assumption of either pervious or impervious slope face.
