2D and 3D Slope Stability Analysis Short Course

Presented by Dr. Thamer Yacoub, Rocscience

The objective of this course is to provide a background on numerical modelling for slope stability analysis using various Rocscience software tools (Slide, RS2, RS3, Slide3). Get the most out of the Rocscience slope stability suite through a balanced mixture of lectures and hands-on computer analysis using practical examples collected over the years.

Module I: Overview of limit-equilibrium methods for slope stability analysis
Module II: Slope stability analysis (2D & 3D)
     • Model building (Tips and Pitfalls)
     • Material behavior models (anisotropic vs. isotropic material models)
     • Interpretation of results
Module III: Slope stability analysis using the shear strength reduction method (2D & 3D)
     • Application of FEM to slope stability analysis
     • Shear Strength Reduction approach
     • Deep seated slope failure
