FLAC/Slope

FLAC/Slope is a special, streamlined version of FLAC for evaluating the factor of safety (FoS) of soil and rock slopes in two dimensions with simple and fast model setup and analysis execution. FLAC/Slope can simulate stability problems under a wide variety of slope conditions, including: arbitrary slope geometries, multiple layers, pore pressure conditions, heterogeneous soil properties, surface loading, and structural reinforcement.

FLAC/Slope 8.10.467 (and greater) is now freeware and is available at no cost. Hard-lock, network, or web licenses are not required to operate this full feature, non-restricted version of the software. However, free technical support is no longer provided to the freeware version. We encourage you to report any suspected bugs and paid technical support is always available.
