Slide2 across Applications
  • Dams/Embankments
  • Excavations
  • Groundwater
  • Open-pit Mining
  • Rock & Soil Slopes

Analyze the slope stability of your dam or embankment. Perform a transient ground water analysis to analyze the transient pore pressures and their impact.

Webinar: Groundwater Seepage
Dams/Embankments

Improve efficiency using the soil profile feature to input your original material geometry as a base template for excavations.

Tutorial: Soil Profile Modelling with Boreholes
Excavations

Made for simplicity and complexity, you can either use a simple water table for your model or the built-in FEM seepage engine for when you need more control.

Groundwater

Create multiple scenarios in one file to analyze different sections of your mine. Or run the model in Slide3 and compute your Slide2 sections within it.

Case Study: Open-pit Mining
Open-pit Mining

Model rock or soil slopes and perform stability analysis to identify the critical failure surfaces. Analyze a wide variety of slopes including Mechanically Stabilized Earth walls, retaining walls and reinforced soil structures.

For complex projects, run your model in Slide3 and compute individual 2D sections with the Slide2 engine. You can also import your Slide2 model into Slide3 to extrude it.

RS2

Drag and drop your Slide2 file into RS2 and hit compute for a Shear Strength Reduction Analysis and directly compare the shear reduction factor to your factor of safety.

Save time by loading your RSPile file in Slide2. Match up your material layers and use the resistance functions in your slope stability analyses.

  • Multi-modal Optimization (MMO)

    Get more insight into your models by searching for more than one critical failure surface. With MMO you can seek out the top three most critical failure surfaces at once and consider them in your analysis.

  • Weak Layer Algorithm

    All you need to do is define all of your weak layer polylines and Slide2 will determine which combination of weak layers is the most critical.

  • Surface Altering Optimization

    This local optimization algorithm, exclusive to Rocscience software, runs on the critical failure surface after the initial global search and is the final push to find the lowest factor of safety.
