GEO-SLOPE International, makers of the GeoStudio 2007 geotechnical software suite have announced a version 7.16 update for their GeoStudio 2007 software products, which includes SLOPE/W, SIGMA/W and SEEP/W, QUAKE/W and others. The major change is […]
On April 10, GeoStudio 2007 version 7.1 was released, a significant service pack update. There are numerous bug fixes and some major improvements. Geo-Slope claims that the overall speed of the product is faster when switching between analyses and views, a welcome change. There are some nice changes to the way Sketch Text is handled, which makes it easier to handle annotation of multiple analyses. And something interesting that’s new in SLOPE/W that allows you to specify a â€œSpatial Mohr-Coulombâ€ model which allows unit weight, cohesion and friction angle to vary across the geometry as a function of x and y. I canâ€™t think of a case where I would have used such a model, but it is very intriguing. More features listed after the break along with links.
Deep excavations usually require proper reinforcement to prevent failure. In this SLOPE/W example we illustrate how the stability of a deep excavation with a sheet pile wall can be evaluated. Features of this simulation include: […]
