GeoStru Slope 2013


This program carries out the analysis of soil or rock slope stability both in static and seismic states utilizing the limit equilibrium methods of Fellenius, Bishop, Janbu, Bell, Sarma, Spencer, Morgenstern & Price and Discrete elements method (DEM) for circular and non circular surfaces by which it is possible to ascertain slippages in the slope, examine a gradual failure, and employ various models of force-deformation relationship. Reinforcements with piles, gravity and/or reinforced concrete bracing walls, nettings, geofabrics, anchors, and terracing may be specified. Distributed and point loads may be defined.

Optional modules
Dynamic Analysis: Numerical method for the analysis of slope stability under seismic conditions for direct integration and modal superposition using Newmark's method (1965). It allows the computation of permanent displacements of landslide mass by integrating the relative acceleration. It is also possible to generate the artificial accelerograms or import accelerograms from: SIMQKE and Sabetta F., Pugliese A.: Estimation of Response Spectra and Simulation of Nonstationary Earthquake Ground Motions.

Slope 3D
Generation of digital 3D models from GIS, DXF or Text files. Import of files from SRTM (SRTM is a software created by GEOSTRU,included in the GEOAPP free suite, which allows the generation of a 3D model by simply selecting an area on Google Maps). The sections to be analyzed with Slope are automatically created in a dynamic way by moving on the 3D model.

DEM - Discrete Element Method 
Advanced numerical method for the analysis of slope stability in static and dynamic conditions. Very sofisticated model of computation of linear and nonlinear analysis based on the behavior of the ductile or fragile soil.

M.R.E. (Mechanically reinforced earth)
Design and verification of reinforced soil retaining structures. Are carried out verification at: pullout and break for bar or strips reinforcements and geosynthetics, local stability (Tieback), global stability (Compound), sliding verifications of a rigid body, limit load, overturning. Provided standards: NTC2008, GRI (Geosynthetic Research Institute), BS8006/1995 (Code of practice for strengthened/reinforced soils and other fills), FHWA (Federal Highway Administration).
