Slope Stability Analysis Verification - Simple Slope

Simple Slope Example (no pore pressures considered)

This example presents the simple case of a total stress analysis without considering pore water pressures. The soil properties are presented in Table 1 and the model of the problem is shown in Figure 1. The factor of safety and its corresponding critical circular failure is required.

Table 1: Material Properties

Figure 1 Model of the problem

Note : Referee Factor of Safety = 1.00 [Giam]

Mean Bishop FOS (18 samples) = 0.993

Mean FOS (33 samples) = 0.991
