Abstract

This research presents a study on the slope stability analysis software -- FLAC/Slope. The study deals with simulations work and creation of models range from mesh and boundary effect, effect of complex geometry and layer soil, effect of geo-grid, effect of water table and effect of surcharge loads. Generally, the purpose of this research is to learn and assess this FLAC/Slope software regarding to its user-friendliness and reliability. The results regarding to these issues will be obtained via analyzing 5 models by using the range of models mention above. This would in turn use to compare with on-the-shelf reference such as from literature review, and several texts. If the value for the factor of safety is close to the value for the factor of safety in these references, it can be conclude that its given result is reliable. As the interface of the software is relatively easy, it can be conclude that it is user-friendly.
