Surface & Underground Excavations
-Whether your project is civil or mining based, above ground or below, RS2 enables you to effectively analyze stress/deformation, stability, support design, and staged excavations with ease.
Groundwater Seepage Analysis
-Factor in groundwater flow with RS2’s integrated seepage analysis tool for steady-state and transient conditions of dams, embankments, slopes, tunnels, and excavations.
Shear Strength Reduction
-Automate your slope stability analysis with Shear Strength Reduction which performs a finite element analysis to identify the critical strength reduction factor.
– Embankments can be analyzed using slope stability, groundwater seepage, consolidation, or dynamic analysis.
RS2 seamlessly integrates with
With shared material libraries and analysis tools, you can import RS2 models into RS3 for 3D analysis. Additionally, the Section Creator tool allows you to export a cut of a 3D model to quickly analyze critical sections in RS2.
Together, these two programs create the ultimate verification tool. Save time by seamlessly transitioning your slope models between Slide2 and RS2. By sharing a materials library, running your stability analyses means you will get the most accurate comparison between your LE and FE analysis results.
Streamline your workflow by importing your material strength properties directly into RS2 to be used for numerical analysis.

Extended Finite Element Method (XFEM)
XFEM provides the capabilities to model joint boundaries and networks without having them conform to the finite element mesh. Without the need for a fine mesh, narrow or complex joint patterns can be modelled even quicker than before.
Improved Dynamic Analysis
RS2 provides all the tools needed for true dynamic analysis of geotechnical structures due to earthquakes or other dynamically applied loadings. This includes Rayleigh and hysteretic damping, excess pore pressure generation, advanced dynamic constitutive models that capture liquefaction, natural frequencies analysis, and dynamic data analysis.
Expedite your analysis with a comprehensive library of geosynthetic support properties including our latest collaboration with Wavin to add 12 different woven geotextiles, 8 uniaxial geogrids, and 2 biaxial geogrids, making it more streamlined to incorporate supports into your models.
