Slope Stability Analyzer
Earth embankments are widely used for roads, railways, river training works, canal embankments, dams, etc. The main economy and safety of these works can be accomplished by adopting proper and economical methods of design. Failure of these structures is likely to result in loss of life and damages to property. It may also result in damage and/or washout of the structure fully or partially.
AEC Slope is used for analyzing stability of slopes for the above structures and reporting safety factors.
The failure of these structures is likely to result in loss of life and damages to property. AEC Slope is used for analyzing stability of slopes for the above structures and reporting safety factors.
Normally most of the computer programs available on this solution provide direct end output of safety factors without any element or slice wise supported calculation/proof check as required by the methods specified in standard codes and manuals. But the AEC Slope provides an accurate solution what is required for a designer to assess adequacy of safety factor and its proof of arriving such values so as to enable him to modify suitably the required section directly on the output drawing itself.
AEC Slope works in tandum with the most popular AutoCAD Application and the drawing drawn for the adequacy checks is directly useful for issue as construction drawing for execution. Designs of earthen structures are now just few clicks away with AEC Slope coming in. It is simple now to input minimum data and run the AEC Slope . Intermediate checks could be carried out to suite site engineers for any design review and adequacy according to the availability of materials at site. The process is seen graphically while the analysis is running on the output Project Drawing.
The output results are arranged and written slice number wise. These results can be cross verified/proof checked from the AutoCAD drawing for any number of sample checks or in a batch check when the data is exported to Excel file and formulas are fed to relevant MS-Excel cells.
AEC Slope covers the procedure for analyzing the stability of earth dam slopes for different conditions of loading to which the dam is expected to be subjected during its life time. The analysis covers all types of shear test results that can be used, conditions requiring analysis, methods of analysis and considerations for earthquake forces.
