Slide2 is a powerful, user-friendly, 2D slope stability analysis program using limit equilibrium method. Slide2 can be used for all types of soil and rock slopes, embankments, earth dams, and retaining walls. Slide2 includes built-in finite element groundwater seepage analysis, probabilistic analysis, multi-scenario modeling, and support design.Download Documentation
Slide2 (formerly “Slide”) is a 2D slope stability program for evaluating the safety factor or probability of failure, of circular and non-circular failure surfaces in soil or rock slopes. Slide2 is simple to use, and yet complex models can be created and analyzed quickly and easily.
Slide2 analyzes the stability of slip surfaces using vertical slice or non-vertical slice limit equilibrium methods like Bishop, Janbu, Spencer, and Sarma, among others and includes extensive probabilistic modeling and analysis features. Nearly all model input parameters can be defined as random variables, so that a probability of failure or reliability index may be calculated. Sensitivity Analysis can also be carried out.
Includes a Finite Element Seepage Analysis tool. Automatically generate your mesh and compute your steady state or transient analysis without the need for separate programs.
Carry out a Probabilistic Analysis in Slide2 by assigning statistical distributions to model input parameters like material properties, support properties, loads, and water table locations to account for the degree of uncertainty in the value of the parameters.. above and beyond Latin-Hypercube sampling. Speed up your computations with a machine-learning-based Response Surface or generate thousands of what-if scenarios with a spatial variability analysis.
Slide2 has an extensive library of support options including Retaining Walls (EFP) and Launched Soil Nails. Reinforce your model with a geosynthetic from Slide2's manufacturer library, import your pile from RSPile, or define your own support.
Get more insights into your models by searching for more than one critical failure surface. Using MMO you can seek out the top three most critical failure surfaces at once and consider them in your analysis.
Achieve full flexibility in the definition of your anisotropic material. Assign any material strength type as a joint or base. Define an angle range for anisotropy or assign one or multiple anisotropic surfaces to the same material.
Define your own geosynthetic manufacturer library and share a read-only copy with your team to ensure everyone is using the same support properties. Once added to Slide2, you will be able to access it from all Slide2 files on your machine.
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.
Drag and drop your Slide2 file into RS2 and hit compute for a Shear Strength Reduction Analysis and directly compare the critical strength 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.
