Slope Stability Analysis Example - Simple Slope with Tension Crack

Simple Slope Example with Tension Crack

In this example, a tension crack zone is added. A suitable tension crack depth D is required and it can be estimated from the following equations [Craig (1997)]:

D= 2*c/(γ √Κα)  , Κα= (1 - sinφ)/( 1 + sinφ)
