Abstract:

UTEXAS2, called IOO29 in the Conversationally Oriented Real-Time Program-Generating System CORPS library, is a slope stability program designed to analyze slopes by any of the following four methods, Spencers procedure, simplified Bishops procedure, force equilibrium procedure with Corps of Engineers Modified Swedish side-force assumption of parallel side forces at a user-specified inclination, and force equilibrium procedure with Lowe and Karafiaths side force assumption. The program will calculate the safety factor for either a prescribed shear surface or for a search of the critical shear surface. Both circular and noncircular shear surfaces can be evaluated. UTEXAS2 is written in FORTRAN and is operational on the following systems Micro- computers using MS-DOS operating system District office Harris 500 computers and Cybernet contract service. Data for UTEXAS2 must be in a previously prepared data file. Output from the program is directed to a user specified file. Input and output graphics are available during program execution.
