I am analyzing the stability of a mechanically stabilized earth wall at a corner where the wall makes a 90 degree turn. The wall face curves outward. I have done the analysis using 2D limit equilibrium software (SLIDE) neglecting the 3D geometry. I have not tried any other 3D software. I wonder how much difference it will make doing the 2D or 3D analysis. Does anyone have some experience on that? Thanks a lot in advance.
