  • Embankments
  • Liquefaction
  • Mining
  • Tunneling
  • Foundations

Embankments can be analyzed using slope stability, groundwater seepage, consolidation, or dynamic analysis.

Tutorial: Embankment Consolidation
Embankments in RS2

RS2 includes groundwater and dynamic analysis tools in addition to a vast library of advanced constitutive models to capture the sudden loss of strength due to liquefaction.

Liquefaction in RS2

Developed for both open-pit and underground excavations, analyze stability, stress/deformation, bench design and support design of underground caverns and opening.

Case Study: Safe Mine Re-entry Plan
Mining in RS2

Design and analyze tunnel excavations and support systems using multi-stage analysis, 3D simulation of support installation and tunnel profile wizard.

Case Study: RS2 vs Plaxis
Tunneling using RS2

Analyze bearing capacity, settlement, and overall stress/deformation behaviour of shallow & deep foundations with features including multi-stage analysis, simulation of support installation and extensive groundwater analysis capabilities.

RS3

With shared material libraries and analysis tools, you can import RS2 models into RS3 for 3D analysis. Additionally, the Section Creator tool allows you to export a cut of a 3D model to quickly analyze critical sections in RS2.

Together, these two programs create the ultimate verification tool. Save time by seamlessly transitioning your slope models between Slide2 and RS2. By sharing a materials library, running your stability analyses means you will get the most accurate comparison between your LE and FE analysis results.

Streamline your workflow by importing your material strength properties directly into RS2 to be used for numerical analysis.

  • Extended Finite Element Method (XFEM)

    XFEM provides the capabilities to model joint boundaries and networks without having them conform to the finite element mesh. Without the need for a fine mesh, narrow or complex joint patterns can be modelled even quicker than before.

  • Improved Dynamic Analysis

    RS2 provides all the tools needed for true dynamic analysis of geotechnical structures due to earthquakes or other dynamically applied loadings. This includes Rayleigh and hysteretic damping, excess pore pressure generation, advanced dynamic constitutive models that capture liquefaction, natural frequencies analysis, and dynamic data analysis.

  • Geosynthetic Supports

    Expedite your analysis with a comprehensive library of geosynthetic support properties including our latest collaboration with Wavin to add 12 different woven geotextiles, 8 uniaxial geogrids, and 2 biaxial geogrids, making it more streamlined to incorporate supports into your models.
