عنوان مقاله [English]
CA2 (Continuum Analysis, 2- dimensional) is a computer program developed by the author. CA2 can solve a variety of complex geotechnical problems using explicit finite difference method. In this paper, an introduction will be given to the theoretical and numerical basis of the program and the capability of the code will be shown by solving a few interesting nonlinear and transient problems. Finally, a new technique in finding earthquake induced displacement of slopes is proposed.
