Hi to all,

I would like to advance a so-called “pushover analysis” using FLAC 8.

In particular, I’m performing a slope stability analysis in which I’d like to replicate the dynamic action related to a water wave impact on the slope. The idea is to use the function *apply sxx* along the (i,j)-cells interested by the wave impact, by applying different values of stress (i.e., sxx) per each time-step of analysis.

So, my doubt is:

**1. How can I concatenate sequentially all the time-steps of analysis?**

Considering a *time-step #1* in which a pressure *sxx* is applied to each (i,j)-cell according to a script like this one:

[…]

apply sxx 10000.0 from i1, j1 to i1, j2

apply sxx 8000.0 from i1, j3 to i1, j4

apply sxx 6000.0 from i1, j5 to i1, j6

apply sxx 4000.0 from i1, j7 to i1, j8

[…]

solve force 1E-2 sratio 0

save C:\Documents\ex_00.sav

How can I automatically perform a *time-step #2* of analysis in, which, the applied pressures are different as follows:

[…]

apply sxx 5000.0 from i1, j1 to i1, j2

apply sxx 10000.0 from i1, j3 to i1, j4

apply sxx 2000.0 from i1, j5 to i1, j6

apply sxx 7000.0 from i1, j7 to i1, j8

[…]

solve force 1E-2 sratio 0

save C:\Documents\ex_01.sav

Thank you in advance for your support!
