Reinforced Slope Analysis Using the Finite Element Method

Bentley Systems
Published: 3 August 2022

In mainstream applications, slope stability analysis is generally a choice between limit equilibrium or finite element. PLAXIS demonstrates that finite element can be a more straight forward and less error prone path through the complex interactions of mechanical and hydraulic behaviors within slope stability.

The below on demand webianr tests PLAXIS on a French research project case study of an experimental seven-meter soil-nail wall a system so fragile that "a flap of a butterfly wing" could result in local failure. Follow how PLAXIS continues to reliably predict its behavior as the experiment is thrown every challenge, from water infiltration to a pause in construction during a bitterly cold winter.
