7 February 2011 – Strata Systems is offering a free software tool, StrataSlope™, to help in the design of reinforced steep slopes and walls. The software includes material estimating, limit equilibrium analysis, direct sliding stability calculations, and internal stability designs.
The software programming takes into account geosynthetic material properties, reduction factors and design safety factors. The software also considers tie-back and compound stability using log-spiral failure surfaces, direct-sliding using conventional two-part wedge mechanism, and deep-seated stability analysis using Bishop’s method.
