Why UTEXAS with GMS?
GMS provides a custom interface to the UTEXAS model offering a simple way to set model parameters and a graphical user interface to run the model and visualize the results. Gather background data from a variety of sources from GIS to CAD and access online data from numerous databases of maps, images, and elevation data. GMS allows you to interact with models in true 3D taking advantage of optimized OpenGL graphics and to create photo-realistic renderings and animations for PowerPoint, print, and web presentations.
UTEXAS quickly analyzes dams, levees and other slopes for the critical failure surface and factor of safety. Use CAD and GIS data to quickly set up a 2D profile model, or sketch it in GMS using the easy and familiar arc and polygon tools. Integrated with SEEP2D for pore pressure data, the combination makes for a full featured 2D profile analysis package.
