RS2 (Formerly RS2 or Phase2) is a powerful 2D finite element program for soil and rock applications. RS2 can be used for a wide range of engineering projects including excavation design, slope stability, groundwater seepage, probabilistic analysis, consolidation, and dynamic analysis capabilities.
Complex, multi-stage models can be easily created and quickly analyzed – tunnels in weak or jointed rock, underground powerhouse caverns, open pit mines, and slopes, embankments, MSE stabilized earth structures, and much more. Progressive failure, support interaction and a variety of other problems can be addressed.
One of the major features of RS2 is finite element slope stability analysis using the shear strength reduction method. This option is fully automated and can be used with various failure criteria, including Mohr-Coulomb and Generalized Hoek-Brown. Slope models can be imported or exported between Slide2 and RS2 allowing easy comparison of limit equilibrium and finite element results.
With 64-bit and multi-core parallel processing options RS2 can solve larger and more complex models in shorter times.
