# pyBIMstab¶

pybimstab is an application software in Python 3 to evaluate the factor of safety against sliding of slopes made of Blocks-In-Matrix (BIM) materials.

The assessment is donde by using the limit equilibrium method through the General Limit Equilibrium (GLE) method of Fredlund & Krahn (1977).

The slip surface has a tortuous geometry and is optimally found by using the math:\mathrm{A}^\ast algorithm proposed by Hart, Nilsson & Raphael (1968).

The following plots are the final outcome of two different analysis:
