slice method

slice method

[′slīs ‚meth·əd]
(meteorology)
A method of evaluating the static stability over a limited area at any reference level in the atmosphere; unlike the parcel method, the slice method takes into account continuity of mass by considering both upward and downward motion.

Finally, in combination with a computational example, the finite element method and Bishop's slice method are adopted, respectively.
Nonproportional Double Safety Factors of Bishop's Slice Method
To verify the validity of the nonproportional correlative reduction finite element method for slope strength parameters, the nonproportional relationship between the double safety factors can be introduced into Bishop's slice method, yielding the nonproportional double safety factors based on the limit equilibrium method.
There are showed three ways to calculate the same volume with the slice method (i.
The basic methods used are the 3D RBF interpolation within the surface contour and the slice method of volume calculation (i.
The ES uses a super high-resolution model with the time slice method (applied for 10~20 years to present or future climate) and a regional climate model.
The table to the right illustrates the number of days required to age a 10 mm slice to the same state of aging that a full-thickness board would reach after five years, clearly revealing the relationship between thickness and aging, the scientific principle underlying the thin slice method.
Slice method [1, 2] has the advantage of clear concepts, definite physical meaning, and rich experience, but limitation of the method is equally clear: due to the presumption that the potential sliding mass is considered as a rigid body, the anchoring effect of slice method is reflected on the structure of the shear resistance to the balance of force and torque, rather than the actual potential sliding soil mass deformation constraint or the inner force redistribution.
The finite element strength reduction method (SRM), which can meet equilibrium and compatibility conditions automatically, has more rigorous theories system than slice method without assuming the shape and position of the sliding surface.
17] compared and analyzed the differences between slice method and finite element limit equilibrium method on the shape and position of slice surface, value of safety factor, and anchoring effect, which are based on a detailed study for anchored slope finite element model.
The budding cortex also lends itself to analysis using conventional brain slice methods.
Based on this model, they have proposed algorithms to dynamically slice methods, objects and classes.
