The SLope-Infiltration-Distributed Equilibrium (SLIDE) is a geotechnical model to compute dynamic factor of safety (FS) due to rainfall infiltration using a method developed by Liao et al. 2010. The released SLIDE model is programmed using MATLAB. The SLIDE model takes into account some simplified hypotheses on water infiltration and defines a direct relation between factor of safety and the rainfall depth on an infinite slope. The SLIDE program operates on a grid with four inputs, including the soil texture map, the slope map, the cumulative rainfall map, and the land cover map.
