Unwedge is a 3D stability analysis and visualization program for underground excavations in rock containing intersecting structural discontinuities. Safety factors are calculated for potentially unstable wedges and support requirements can be modeled using various types of pattern and spot bolting and shotcrete. Use Unwedge to quickly create a model, perform a safety factor analysis, place reinforcement and interpret the results.
Unwedge's Windows-based interface provides an easy to use, graphical environment for data entry and visualization that greatly simplifies the analysis and design process. Popup windows allow for easy entry and modification of model parameters, and easy to use editing tools provide a convenient method for performing parametric studies. The graphical data interpreter provides a rich set of tools, including 3D animation, for the convenient display of wedges surrounding the excavation.
In addition to allowing for simple point and click geometry input/editing, Unwedge provides enhanced support models for bolts, shotcrete and support pressures, the ability to optimize tunnel orientation and an option to look at different combinations of three joint sets based on a list of more than three joint sets. Unwedge uses a new analysis engine based on Goodman and Shi's block theory, which includes the ability to incorporate induced stress around the excavation and the effect on stability, new strength models such as Barton-Bandis and Power Curve, and the ability to improve the scaling and sizing of wedges.
Swedge is a quick, interactive and simple to use analysis tool for evaluating the geometry and stability of surface wedges in rock slopes.
Phase2 is a powerful 2D elasto-plastic finite element stress analysis program for underground or surface excavations in rock or soil.
RocSupport is a fast and easy to use program for estimating the deformation of circular tunnels in weak rock and visualizing the tunnel interaction with various support systems.
RocPlane is an interactive software tool for performing planar rock slope stability analysis and support design.
GEO5 is a suite of programs for geotechnical analysis. The software package includes individual programs that are closely linked to each other and run in the same environment.
