Slope stability analysis with LimitState:GEO
Analyse a wide range of slope stability problems - quickly and accurately
When consucting slope stability analysis with LimitState:GEO, you will find that it is:
- As straightforward as the conventional 'method of slices';
- able to include retaining walls, piles, reinforcement and more;
- able to identify the critical slip surface - even if highly non-circular;
- flexible with slope geometry and load definition;
- verified against a wide range of standard geotechnical solutions.
With LimitState:GEO you can:
- Use the built in wizards for quick definition of standard slope problems;
- easily apply partial factors (including Eurocode 7)
- specify water pressures, including ru coefficient;
- obtain a comprehensive report output.

As an engineer you will be aware that apparently similar structures can fail in many different ways. LimitState:GEO automatically searches all possible failure modes every time you solve. This means that you can be confident that the critical case has been identified. With the ability to model unusual geometries and loadings, it is easy to check for scenarios involving layered soils and surcharges.
LimitState:GEO uses rigorous Limit Analysis techniques rather than the more approximate Limit Equilibrium approaches commonly used with slope stability software (e.g. method of slices). The result is that solutions are much more straightforward to obtain, with no need to specify entry/exit points, solution method, interslice shear-normal force functions or a search space.
LimitState:GEO has been benchmarked against a wide range of problems (see the verification pages). For complex problems it is often found that LimitState:GEO obtains a more critical mechanism than if using the method of slices.
LimitState:GEO is the revolutionary geotechnical stability analysis software that can be used to rapidly determine the critical failure mechanism and margin of safety for any type of problem, including those involving:
