Phase 2 9.

0 software tools for rock and soil

Excavation & Support Design Software

Phase2 9.0 is an extremely versatile 2D finite element stress analysis program for designing underground
or surface excavations and their support systems. Phase2 9.0 can be used for rock or soil applications and
includes slope stability analysis, fully-coupled groundwater and dynamic analysis capabilities.

Phase2 9.0 provides new material
models for rock and soil including
Anisotropic, Mohr-Coulomb with
Cap, and Softening/Hardening.
Groundwater pore pressure can
be determined using steady state
or transient finite element seepage
analyses. For consolidation analysis,
Phase2 9.0 also comes with fully-
coupled fluid/solid analysis based on
Biot Theory.

Support Design
Phase2 9.0 offers a wide range of
support modeling options, including
a variety of bolts and liners. Liners
can be used to model retaining walls,
piles, geotextiles, steel set systems, Consolidation analysis of embankment under variable load.
and much more. Support-capacity
envelopes can be generated based on
the following codes: CSA A23.3, ACI
318-11, EC2 EN1992-1.

Slope Stability Analysis

The shear strength reduction method
is fully automated and can be
used with either Mohr-Coulomb or
Generalized Hoek-Brown strength
parameters. Slope models can be
imported from Slide and computed in

Dynamic Analysis
In Phase2 9.0, the dynamic analysis
option can be used to examine
earthquake, blast, and machine
loading scenarios. Dynamic boundary
conditions allow the user to absorb
incoming pressure and shear waves,
transmit motion into the model, and Dynamic modeling - earthquake analysis results: Deformed mesh and Sigma1 contours and time-query
Horizontal Displacement vs Time results
insert user-defined dashpot dampers
and nodal masses.
