RS2 is formerly known as RS2 or Phase2 and is a kind of very powerful 2D finite element program for soil and also rock applications. For a wide range of engineering projects, the 2Dfinite element can be used. It includes the following kinds of engineering projects such as dynamic analysis capabilities, excavation design, consolidation, slope stability, probabilistic analysis, and groundwater seepage. With the help of 2D finite element, multi-stage models that are complex can be easily analyzed and created quickly.
It comprises the following such as - MSE stabilized earth structures, tunnels in the weak or jointed rock, open-pit mines and slopes, underground powerhouse caverns, and embankments and much more. Other issues that can be addressed are progressive failure, support interaction, and other problems.
One of the pivotal features of the 2D finite element is the slope stability analysis which uses the sheer strength method of reduction. Using various failure criteria, including Mohr-Coulomb and generalized Hoek-brown method, this option can be fully automated and used in the above-mentioned method. Between Slide 2 and RS2 slope, models can be imported or exported easily. Plus, it allows easy comparison of limit equilibrium and finite element results. RS2 can solve larger and more complex models in a short time with the help of 64-bit and multi-core parallel processing options.
Advanced Material Models
2D finite elements include certain features which are additionally comprehensive collection of new material models. New material models comprise of the following in RS2:
• Slide2 material models with Isotropic and Anisotropic failure criteria.
• FLAC models including CY Soil and CH Soil.
• PLAXIS models including Hardening Soil, HS Small Soft Soil, and Soft Soil creep.
• Visco-Elastic-Plastic models.
• Swelling Rock model etc.
Rocscience offers the 2D finite element with additional features which makes it easy for the engineers to handle various kinds of dynamic projects in their field. With the help of a 2D finite element, multi-stage models which are complex can be easily analyzed and created quickly. It helps a lot in making projects easier.
Rocscience was founded in the year 1996 and is a champion in developing 2D and 3D software for civil, mining, and geo-technical engineering. After a lot of research, Rocscience has been able to develop various geotechnical software including 2D finite element. Rocscience understands that for engineers, it is very important to have software which is easy to use and can help the engineers.
