Infinite Slope v.1.01 Edu (Freeware)

Infinite Slope v.1.01 Edu (Freeware)

Infinite Slope v.1.01 Edu (Freeware)

Hi to everybody,

I would like to share this nice experiment born for my pre-design necessities and then directed as freeware to the students of my basic course in geotechnics at the University of Palermo.
So often we sketch out the simple 'infinite slope' limit equilibrium model to pre-study a simple slope stability problem. Than I tought: why should I not write a software that can help us in this. Some collegues found it so useful that I'm already finishing testing and validating the next version: Infinite Slope v.2.00
Some of you may find it useful too for simple slopes, please let me know any suggestion and critics.
Here is the link:

Hi! Sorry you can't access to it, I verified the typing and tried clicking on it, it works! Try from another computer.

RE: Infinite Slope v.1.01 Edu (Freeware)

hmmmm, interesting works fine from my home computer. Thanks!


RE: Infinite Slope v.1.01 Edu (Freeware)

You are welcome!
Feel free to send me suggestions.
The 2.0 version is upcoming...

RE: Infinite Slope v.1.01 Edu (Freeware)

feel free to download the last v.1.02 version and don't forget the v.2.00 is upcoming very soon with new powerful features (seismic actions, design of drainage trenches, calculation of the force needed to stabilize the slope...etc...).

Kind regards,
Sandro Muscolino

RE: Infinite Slope v.1.01 Edu (Freeware)

The most of our collegues tend to study factors of safety for traditional circular slip surfaces also in layered soil masses. This automated approach leads to mistakes sometimes fatal. It's known to be fundamental to adopt the correct model for each analysis. Even simple two-layered soil masses require often to put the attention to multilinear slip surfaces which are far from being circular. The traditional search of the critical slip surface by means of the nodes grid and the tangents should be the basis and must be completed with the consideration of sneaky slip surfaces chosen by our "engineering judgement". Those potential surfaces are often multilinear, as in dams, and in many cases they are simply linear. In fact, in bibliography the most of case studies consider very often complex landslides which exhibit characteristics of more than one of the four basic landslide types.

Dear collegues,
Infinite Slope freeware version 2.00 with professional features is available at:


We are already working on the next freeware version, let me know what features could help your work.

Best regards,
Infinite Slopes
