- Why does the factor of safety not increase when the wedge weight increases?
- Once movement occurs does Unwedge continue to calculate the factor of safety based on the buoyant weight of the block?
- When including a constant joint water pressure in Unwedge, does the reported factor of safety consider the buoyant weight or the dry weight?
- What is the difference between shear force and resistance force?
- How is support pressure defined in Unwedge?
- What is the significance of zero pressure on the boundary in Unwedge?
- How can water pressure increase the factor of safety in Unwedge?
- How are bolts implemented in Unwedge and what failure modes are supported?
- Is the input bolt tensile capacity the ultimate bolt capacity or the yield stress?
- What does the statement, "effect of stress cannot reduce FS from value computed without stress", mean?
