TXT-tool 3.081-1.5: Manual for the LS-RAPID Software
This paper highlights the LS RAPID software that has ability to simulate the initiation and motion of landslides. Fundamental equations and concepts in the LS RAPID model are briefly explained. Step by step procedure of the use of this software are presented, which started from setting of the topography, creating the possible sliding surface using the ellipsoidal parameter, delineation of the unstable mass, soil and water parameters input, triggering factors for the inducement of landslides, the conditions for calculation, running the landslide simulation and up to the output settings after the simulation. Several cases of landslides which were analyzed by LS RAPID are described further in the PDF Tool: Manual for the LS-RAPID software.
