OPTUM G2 is a user-friendly and powerful 2D geotechnical software unlike anything you have worked with before.
In OPTUM G2, factors of safety are computed using Strength Reduction Finite Element Limit Analysis (SR-FELA). Besides short calculation times, SR-FELA also provides the possibility to calculate rigorous upper and lower bounds on the true factor of safety. In practice, this means that the true factor of safety can be determined within a negligible tolerance in a matter of seconds.
