LimitState:GEO features in Geosynthetics International Article
LimitState's geotechnical stability software, LimitState:GEO, features in an article in Vol. 19 of Geosynthetics International examining the stability of geosynthetic landfill caps.
The paper compares conventional limit equilibrium design hand calculations with those undertaken using LimitState:GEO and also by conventional FE. It shows that, in certain scenarios, the conventional limit equilibrium approach significantly overestimates stability when compared to the LimitState:GEO and FE analyses, which compare closely.
