The Slope Stability Analysis
Program (SSAP version 4.9.6 - 2018), is the first full
freeware application for LEM implementing a series of
characteristics usually available today only in
commercial software. SSAP has been developed during 27
years (1991-2018). All computational procedures have
been developed starting from published paper on LEM and
from original developments by the author.
Current SSAP release (4.9.6 64 bit -2018) contains many
new tools and original algorithms in order to obtain
more reliable FOS values and using a more general
approach to LEM with respect to the past.
