Comprehensive and Powerful

SLOPE/W is the leading software product for computing the factor of safety of earth and rock slopes. With SLOPE/W, you can analyze both simple and complex problems for a variety of slip surface shapes, pore-water pressure conditions, soil properties, analysis methods and loading conditions.

Using limit equilibrium, SLOPE/W can model heterogeneous soil types, complex stratigraphic and slip surface geometry, and variable pore-water pressure conditions using a large selection of soil models. Analyses can be performed using deterministic or probabilistic input parameters. Stresses computed by a finite element stress analysis may be used in addition to the limit equilibrium computations for the most complete slope stability analysis available.

With this comprehensive range of features, SLOPE/W can be used to analyze almost any slope stability problem you will encounter in your geotechnical, civil, and mining engineering projects.

Formulation

SLOPE/W is formulated in terms of moment and force equilibrium factor of safety equations. For example, the Morgenstern-Price method satisfies both force and moment equilibrium.
This general formulation makes it easy to compute the factor of safety for a variety of methods and to readily understand the relationships and differences among all the methods.

SLOPE/W can use finite element computed stresses from SIGMA/W or QUAKE/W to calculate a stability factor by computing both total shear resistance and mobilized shear stress along the entire slip surface.
SLOPE/W then computes a local stability factor for each slice.

Probabilistic analysis can be performed by using normal distribution functions to vary soil properties and loading conditions. Using a Monte Carlo approach, SLOPE/W computes the probability of failure in addition
