Parameters - Polygonal Slip Surface

The frame "Parameters" contains a table with a list of blocks, which are created by entering a polygonal slip surface. Parameters of individual blocks are edited in the "Edit block" dialog window. Blocks can also be edited on the desktop with the help of active objects.

The Mohr-Coulomb strength parameters on a slip surface and in the joints separating individual blocks, including the unit weight of a rock, are specified here.

This window also serves to introduce forces due to water in rock blocks.

General assumptions for the calculation of the polygonal slip surface are listed here.
