DipAnalyst – Free software package for kinematic analysis of rock slope stability

DipAnalyst stereonet plot

Dr. Yonathan Admassu from Kent State University Ashtabula has released a free rock slope stability software package for kinematic analysis of planar, wedge and toppling modes of failure.

DipAnalyst is an application software developed for a new quantitative kinematic analysis approach as well as the traditional stereonet-based method. The quantitative kinematic analysis, instead of relying on representative discontinuity values, considers all discontinuities and their possible intersections to calculate failure indices.
