Commercial software for regional slope stability studies

Commercial software for regional slope stability studies

Commercial software for regional slope stability studies

Wondering if anyone knows of commercially available software packages for regional slope stability studies. There are many 'freeware' or 'research' packages available but unfortunately support is not avialable and some of the packages are heavily out of date or have licenses that prevent commercial use. I've more or less settled on using TRIGRS and Scoops 3d but if something is commercially available that's equivalent that would be better (or alternatively similar to TRIGRS/Scoops3d but with a more robust integrated hydrology model and allowing monte carlo simulations)

Examples of free softwares include:

TRIGRS and Scoops3D by the USGS
TRIGRS-P - probabilistic extension of TRIGRS2
LISA by United States Department of Agriculture - Software no longer available but very similar to TRIGRS albeit 30 years old
MAT.TRIGRS - recreation of TRIGRS in Matlab by chinese researchers
iHydroSlide3d - Looks the most promising; similar to TRIGRS but with a significantly more robust hydrology model. The research papers for it are still in peer review.

RE: Commercial software for regional slope stability studies

The standard north american software to perform limit equilibrium slope stability analysis is Geostudio or Rocscience.
