The SVSLOPE batch run dialog can be opened by selecting Models > Batch SVSLOPE Models > Batch Analyze Selection which provides a convenient way in the software to analyze a group of numerical models. A typical use of this type of feature might be if the user has created a significant group of numerical models all with slight differences. Then batch analyze all the models and keep track of their resulting changes in the factor of safety. Another use for this feature is to analyze a certain trend in a slope stability numerical model. A group of numerical models can first be created and then analyzed. The factors of safety are then plotted using the Graph button in the order in which they are analyzed. In this way trends can be easily identified in the software.

 

Up

This function moves the current numerical model up in the order in which the models are analyzed.

 

Down

This function moves the current numerical model down in the order in which the models are analyzed.

 

Delete

This command deletes the current model from the batch run process but does NOT delete it from the hard drive or the list of projects and models.

 

Graph...

It is possible with the software to batch analyze a group of slope stability models and then display a graph of the factor of safety (FOS) versus the model index. Model index refers to the order in which the models are run (which may be adjusted).

 

This type of graph is highly useful for the following types of projects:

 

Modeling the influence of slope changes (geometry changes)
Modeling the influence of various mitigation scenarios on the stability of the slope
Modeling various configurations of support / reinforcement systems

 

Start

This is a batch function which initiates analyzing all of the selected models in the solver. Multiple models may be selected using the Ctrl or Shift keys and selecting a group of models. The analysis log file is written to the project in which the selected batch models are run.

 

Stop

This command stops the current batch analysis.

 

Skip

This command may be issued during the batch analysis if a particularly long model is being analyzed. Pressing this button causes the currently analyzed model to be skipped.

 

OK

This function closes the current dialog.
