What is SVSLOPE?
SVSLOPE is advanced 2D/3D slope stability analysis coupled software. You can easily perform limit equilibrium slope analysis of soil or rock slopes by the method of slices or stress-based methods. SVSLOPE enables you perform advanced modeling with comprehensive slip surface searching, pore-water pressure conditions, and innovative 3D spatial analysis. You can quickly interpret, prototype, analyze, and visualize large datasets from varied sources. Innovative functionalities allow for analysis of extensive sites, combined with the efficient solution of multiple concurrent locations for spatial stability analysis.
- Analyze slopes with various methods
Calculate safety factors and increase accuracy using 3D analysis of site geology to ensure infrastructure safety and reliability. Perform analysis with limit equilibrium method of slices or stress-based methods. Choose from classic method of slices like Bishop, Janbu, Spencer, Morgenstern-Price, GLE, and Sarma methods. Perform hybrid Kulhawy analysis by importing stress fields in 2D and 3D.
- Select from over 20 different strength models
Advanced material representation, loading, and reinforcements provides the ability to choose the appropriate representation of soil and rock site materials, including Mohr-Coulomb, Hoek-Brown, Undrained, Anisotropic, Bilinear, Frictional-Undrained, Anisotropic Linear Model (ALM), and unsaturated shear strength models. With complex geometry paradigms, you can model challenging geostrata and material zones such as block models, enclosed material volumes (MVM), and bedding guides. SVSLOPE allows you to model seismically active zones with a variety of methods. Take advantage of extensive support for reinforced slopes including grouted anchors, micro-piles, and geomembranes.
- Perform rapid and comprehensive analysis
Determine the full 3D slip surface at hundreds of locations in extensive models, such as open-pit mines, riverbanks, and road and rail corridors with multi-plane slope stability analysis (MPA). Automatically calculate the slip direction at each location using orientation analysis features. Design with confidence when considering faults, weak planes, and pore-water pressures. Get access to the most available search methods on the market including Greco, Cuckoo, Wedges. Use probabilistic analysis such as Monte Carlo, Latin Hypercube, and the Alternative Point Estimation Method (APEM) to build robust digital twins. Further refine models with sensitivity analysis and spatial variability features.
- Visualize digital twins
Deliver high-quality digital twin visualizations of designs. Access state-of-the-art, report-ready graphical presentation of results without additional manipulation. Create and manipulate large, complex models with the 3D immersive graphics engine. Easily integrate with other Bentley design and analysis applications.

We were able to quickly develop the conceptual 3D model with SoilVision using topographic data, borehole logs, and 2D geologic cross-sections. Once the conceptual model was built, we were able to analyze multiple potential failure locations and orientations.Justin Knudsen, P.E. Senior, Civil/Geotechnical Engineer, Tierra Group
