TUTORIALS

Fredlund 1977 Benchmark (5m 19s) - This video illustrates the effect of extruding the classic Fredlund (1977) benchmark into a 3D model and re-running the analysis to determine the possible differences between a 2D and a 3D slope stability numerical model.

Tailings Dam Slope Stability Model (7m 47s) - This video illustrates a complete tailings dam analysis, from initial model creation to examination of the results.

Analysis of a Tie-Back Wall (2m 40s) - This video illustrates an analysis of a tie-back wall implementing grouted reinforcement.

Earth Dam: Non-Circular Slip Surface (1m 23s) - This video illustrates a back-analysis of an earth dam with a specified failure surface.

External Loading and Weak Layer Analysis (1m 32s) - This video demonstrates the ability of SVSlope® to handle external loads and a weak layer analysis.

Greco Non-Circular Slip Surface Analysis (50s) - This video illustrates the use of the Greco method for statistically searching for the critical slip surface.

Probabilistic Analysis of a Syncrude Tailings Dam (1m 49s) - This video illustrates a probabilistic analysis of a tailings dam at the Syncrude site.

Three-Layer Slope with Method of Slices (3m 39s) - This video illustrates a circular slip surface analysis of a model with three soil layers.

Duncan Three-Stage Total Stress Method (1m 43s) - This video demonstrates the ease of calculation of this method.
