Formatted abstract
The purpose of this project was to develop a computer program to analyze the slope stability by using method of slices. Bishop’s Method had been introduced to calculate the factor of safety. This project had considered a computer program called Blender with add on Python language to complete the design. Blender is an application that used to create 2D and 3D graphic animation. With Python programming language, Blender can achieve better animation that the picture is nearly to be similar as real life. As there were not much engineering software developed to design slope stability, this design would be helpful in the future to be used for analyzing slope stability. The biggest advantage for this design is that users could draw the slope using Blender with any height or length instead of need to fill in the details. This had result it had different feature from other design software. The design was then to be compared with hand-calculations to check the accuracy. However, there were still some improvements needed. Jambu’s Method was recommended to be added inside the design to allow users choose the type of method of slices in the future.
