This paper explains the basic theory, concept and application of strength reduction method relevant to geotechnical engineering practices. Some simple models on slope stability are developed in DIANA in two-dimensional and three-dimensional spaces and the results are compared with the standard analytical results and with results obtained from other numerical methods or software. The failure patterns in each model are also captured and shown in separate figures.
