Soil slope stability analysis is a key process in geotechnical engineering that aims to find the so-called factor of safety. The engineering practice usually employs the limit equilibrium method to this end. However this method possesses a number of limitations such as postulating a failure surface. Despite the limitations of the method, it became a standard in the industry and the results obtained from it are shown by academics to be not considerably different from results obtained with better… CONTINUE READING
