Stability of Slopes and Embankments

RTslope - Slope stability

RTslope investigates the stability of embankments, terrain jumps and dams using Bishop's lamella method. Different terrain forms as well as a multi-layer soil profile with different characteristic values in the individual layers and polygonal boundaries can be mapped easily and efficiently.
