SVSlope®: The New Standard in Slope Stability Analysis

SVSlope® Anchor Design Through Back-Analysis

In This Issue

SoilVision Systems Ltd. is pleased to announce the addition of a new back-analysis feature in our SVSlope® 2D and 3D software. This feature allows end-users to design anchor patterns in order to stabilize slopes. It has been implemented in both the 2D and 3D versions of SVSlope®, and therefore allows the full 3D back-analysis of arbitrary patterns of anchors which vary spatially in a 3-D fashion.

This new feature is easy to use and may be incorporated in any existing analysis. It is also being provided freely to our existing customers at no charge. Simply download the latest version of our SVOffice™ 2009 software and the feature will be enabled for all licensed users.

Training videos specific to the new back-analysis feature are also available in the SVSlope® Downloads section. There are also general SVOffice™ 2009 training videos available separately.

Success Story

SVSlope® and SVFlux™ were recently utilized in the back-analysis of the failure of the C.W. Bill Young Regional Reservoir in Tampa Bay, Florida, to provide a total stress and effective stress analysis of the failure. A key part of the analysis was the calculation of seepage gradients during construction and operation of the facility and determining what influence the seepage gradients had on the filling and operation of the facility.

A presentation of the details of the failure is available on this page at Devo Engineering under the title "State Of The Art Slope Stability Analysis With Transient Seepage Forces". Animations and videos are also available.

Upstream Boundary Conditions for Seepage Modeling

Rapid drawdown and filling scenarios create unique boundary condition requirements for earth dams and embankments. Special boundary conditions have been implemented in SVFlux™ to properly formulate the upstream side of the earth dam, which is often neglected when focusing on only the downstream side of the problem. This scenario was particularly apparent in a recent analysis performed by one of our clients.
