Examine3D is an engineering analysis program for underground excavations in rock. Examine3D - техническая аналитическая программа для подземных раскопок в скале.
Examine3D is an engineering analysis program for underground excavations in rock. Examine3D was developed mainly for stress analysis, although its data visualization tools can be applied to a wide range of three-dimensional mining and civil engineering data. For example, Examine3D has been used to visualize microseismic datasets such as seismic velocity, source parameters, and event density.
Examine3D consists of three program modules: Model generates the geometry and boundary element discretization for underground openings, Compute performs the computation of stresses and displacements using the direct boundary element method, and Interpret, with 3D animation capability, visualizes the analysis results. Each of the three modules can be run independently. For example, the input data for Compute can be generated using Model or some other CAD based program. Similarly, Interpret accepts data from Compute or from some other source. Both Model and Interpret are fully interactive and menu-driven programs.

Shear-normal stress envelopes generated by RocData can be applied to problems such as limit equilibrium analysis of slope stability, while the principal stress envelopes can be used for modeling the behaviour of underground excavations. RocData is a highly interactive program that allows users to easily test different strength parameters and observe how they impact a failure envelope, giving users a better understanding of material strength.
The material strength properties determined by RocData can be used as input for numerical analysis programs such as RS2 (finite element stress analysis and support design for excavations) and Slide (limit equilibrium slope stability analysis).
RocData now includes RocProp, a database of intact rock properties that runs as a standalone application. RocProp contains over 700 test records from credible sources, including compressive strength, tensile strength, elastic properties, Hoek parameters, and velocity parameters. The database can be searched and filtered in various ways, and allows users to add their own data to the database.

Distributions of energy, velocity and bounce height are also calculated along the slope profile. Distributions can be graphed and comprehensive statistics are automatically calculated.
RocFall can also assist in determining remedial measures: the material properties of each slope segment can be changed allowing for comparison of results. Information about the kinetic energy and location of impact on a barrier can help determine the capacity, size and location of barriers. RocFall also provides commercial barrier information. Users can define a custom barrier, or select one of the predefined barriers.
Report generation of RocFall results is straightforward. Screen captures can easily be pasted into word processors for fast report writing. Graphs and raw data can be exported to Excel from the right-click menu of any graph.
To assist with determining coefficients of restitution, RocFall includes a large table of coefficients of restitution that was compiled after an extensive literature search. Tables for dynamic friction and rolling friction coefficients, as well as rock density, are also provided.
Rock paths can be filtered. You can right-click on individual paths to select only that path. You can also right-click on a barrier and select, from the many impacts on the barrier, paths that had the highest velocity when they contacted the barrier. The Filter Results dialog provides numerous filtering options.
RocFall allows you to create faster and easier high-quality output. Graphs can be exported to Excel with 1-click and the slope and rock-paths can easily be exported to a DXF file for import into a CAD program. The Drawing toolkit has been improved to include importing of bitmap files, multi-line text-boxes that can be auto-filled with relevant simulation data, axes that can be dragged-and-dropped to show coordinates on a printed page and much more. In addition, the new Page Setup options allow users to completely customize the headers and footers of any RocFall printouts.

The intersection of these curves determines a factor of safety for the support system.
RocSupport can be used as a tool for the preliminary design of tunnels and support systems. It can provide valuable information about various tunnel support options before detailed analysis is carried out with a finite element program such as RS2.
The program is applicable to tunnels excavated in weak rock under squeezing ground conditions. It is not applicable for excavations in hard rock, where failure is controlled by structural discontinuities or brittle failure.

RocTopple is an interactive software tool for performing toppling analysis and support design of rock slopes. The analysis is based on the popular block toppling method of Goodman and Bray first published in a paper, Toppling of Rock Slopes, in 1976.
Input the slope parameters, discontinuity spacing, dip angle and strength, and RocTopple automatically generates the toppling blocks. RocTopple makes it easy to visualize the slope failure in 2D and interactive 3D, and displays the potential failure mode of individual blocks (toppling, sliding, stable) as well as the overall safety factor.
In addition to deterministic analysis, RocTopple features probabilistic and sensitivity analysis options. Probabilistic analysis allows you to define statistical distributions for any combination of input variables. A probability of failure is calculated, and results can be plotted as histograms, scatter plots, and cumulative plots. Sensitivity analysis allows you to determine the effect of individual variables on the results.
Support can be modeled using rock bolts with user-defined length, angle, capacity, spacing, and location. A variety of external loading types can be applied, including line loads, distributed loads, seismic load, and water pressure.
RocTopple implements Eurocode 7 design standards, which allows you to define partial safety factors for different components of the analysis. RocTopple rounds out our suite of rock slope stability software, which also includes Swedge, RocPlane and Dips.
