  • Random fields in SVSlope and SVFlux

    Geotechnical engineering, as a general practice, has always struggled with quantifying the significant amount of variability that can be present at any given site. There may be variability present in field sampling methods, equipment, lab testing procedures, level of training of field personnel, or many other such factors. One particular problematic aspect of slope stability analysis is the ...

  • Why perform 3D slope stability analysis

    Background The benefits associated with performing 3D slope stability analyses were expounded by Dr. Del Fredlund in the 1970s.  Over the years a number of 3D methods of analysis have been researched. These methods have ranged from the method of columns to approaches based on variational calculus, and more recently, the use of dynamic programming. The interest in 3D slope stability analysis ...
