To carry out Planar Sliding analysis using dip vectors, the dip vector mode must be in effect. Contours were not recomputed when display settings were loaded from file and hemisphere or projection changed. Updated hardlock code to current API. A Dip Vector directly represents the maximum dip of a plane and is orthogonal 90 degrees to the pole vector of a plane.

Line contours were not being properly grayscaled. New improved traverse information input dialog. When two joint planes intersect, they can form a wedge which can slide out of the slope depending on kinematic and frictional considerations.
Fixed bug with loading of wrapped windows from Dips v5 and Dips 6. This has been fixed. Kinematic Sensitivity Analysis of slope parameters. One of the major features in Dips is the ability to input and analyze data from curved boreholes. Declination text in the Infoviewer was wrong, it said W Positive. Dips is designed for the interactive analysis of orientation based geological data.
If you are in Dip Vector mode the Contour Plot vector option will automatically contour the dip vectors.
New preferences for Enter key behaviour. Metric or imperial units for jointing analysis and curved boreholes. If you want to go back to the old method, there is a new display option Draw Vips First. A recently used folders option has been added. You can quickly perform a sensitivity rocsciejce by varying input parameters and exporting results. This makes it easy to move to different folders containing Dips files.
Added silent install capability.
For sliding on a single plane, the dip vector of the sliding plane must be in rocsscience primary critical zone. Fixed bug where very first undo in the spreadsheet would remove all rows. When using Process Data or Rotate Data if any of the rows didn't have a traverse assigned its orientation would be copied from a previous row. Dip vector plots can be contoured just like pole plots. Terzaghi weighting factor is now document based.
You can import Survey and Collar files, and Dips will process the data automatically without the need for the user to manually sub-divide curved boreholes into linear segments.
A new preferences dialog has been added to the file menu. Wedge sliding kinematic dlps is based on the analysis of intersections. Dips is our popular stereographic projection program for the analysis and presentation of orientation based data. Select a license for purchase. A Scatter Plot permits visual analysis of pole distribution by plotting symbols representing the number of approximately coincident poles at dipa given orientation. Model virtually any type of underground or surface excavation, and analyze stress, groundwater flow, and design supports with ease.
Alternatively, you can select the Planar Sliding No Limits option from the sidebar.
Very useful for educators wishing to generate data for problem sets etc. Bug fix for network version and path path dialog.
What's New in Dips Version
Can now turn off high dpi setting in the technical support dialog accessed through the Help menu. Under win98, the program would crash after prolonged use. Just copy the info in the dialog and email it to us with your problem. The pasting of data now properly expands the number of columns and formats the Dips spreadsheet correctly.
