 · Slicing of 3D models into 2D cross-sections for 2D analysis

 · Entry and exit searching method implemented in 3D

Why use 3D?

The majority of slope stability failures are inherently three-dimensional in character; that is, the failure surface most often represents a variation on a dish-shaped surface. Therefore, any 2D representation is a significant simplification of the actual situation. This video* (130MB download) is from a recent web presentation by Dr. Murray Fredlund and discusses the 3D question in some detail. For additional background, please visit this article.

Viewing 3D Models as 2D Planes

It can be difficult to interpret three-dimensional model results without good visualization tools. To address this, SoilVision Systems Ltd. has implemented the ability to view SVSlope® model results along two-dimensional cutting planes in any of the three standard directions (XY/plan view, XZ, or YZ).

Success Story: Oil Sands Excavation Slope Stability

The modeling project we worked on had a 3D component which could not be reasonably modeled with existing 2D software. The team at SoilVision Systems Ltd. was helpful in training regarding the use of the SVSlope 3D product. The software worked well for the project at hand and we look forward to its continued use.
