WEDGE ANALYSIS DETERMINE THE FACTOR OF SAFETY OF A TETRAHEDRAL WEDGE THAT MAY FORM IN A ROCK SLOPE GEOTECHNICAL | E03

Theory used in this module This module can perform a deterministic as well as a probabilistic analysis. With a probabilistic analysis you can consider variations in material properties and other parameters. Distribution types that can be applied to material properties in a probabilistic analysis include uniform, triangular, exponential, normal, log normal and beta distributions. You can set the number of analysis iterations to be performed and the required probability limit.
