Slope Stability Analysis (FEM 2D & 3D)
Land instability is a major geotechnical hazard that affects many developed and undeveloped sites. Assessing the stability of a parcel of land takes great skill and experience, gained through years of study and mentoring by industry leaders. The assessment process usually involves a walkover mapping exercise followed by subsurface investigation and laboratory analysis in order to develop a geological model of the site, and then conducting computer stability analysis using the latest software.
Asset's Principal Geotechnical Engineers and Engineering Geologists are among the industry leaders regarding slope risk assessment and stability analysis, and have carried out many projects encompassing all stages of the assessment and alsysis process. Computer slope stability analysis is carried out using 2D and 3D FEM software, operated by experienced staff and under the direction of our Senior Principal Engineer. Slope remediation measures (e.g. subsoil drainage, anchors, retaining walls, land re-shaping etc) can then be developed and constructed where required.
