This module is concerned with the analysis of Slope Stability in dynamic conditions utilising Newmarks’ method.

In this method the slope is viewed as a solid block that slides on an inclined plane.

Movement occurs when acceleration exceeds the critical value (kc), that is calculated by a pseudo static analysis.

When acceleration falls below this value motion proceeds with null acceleration.

Qsim can return the prgression of displacements and speeds during the seism and the permanent peak displacement and can generate project accelerograms.
