GALENA provides you with the functions necessary to model most situations using:
- Earthquake forces
- Externally-applied distributed loads
- Water-induced forces
- Externally-applied point forces
Earthquake forces can be applied to models as a pseudo-static seismic coefficient, that can also be used to model blast effects.
Distributed loads can be evenly distributed, or unevenly distributed - GALENA provides functions for for both, so that you are able to correctly and easily define simple and complex loads, including vehicular, roadway/railway, structural, equipment or dragline/shovel loadings.
Hydrostatic water forces can be included by defining a tension crack as being water-filled to a nominated depth with a medium (water/slurry) of a nominated unit weight.
Point forces of any value can be applied at any position and at any angle on the slope surface.
