Abstract This paper presents the impact of selected essential aspects of geological structure on the state of slope stability as assessed by changes in the safety factor (SF). The engineering geological slope features that were analysed include: (i) changes in soil cohesion and internal friction angle, (ii) presence of a weak soil layer and its span, (iii) structural discontinuity (i.e. fault), (iv) soil permeability properties and water conditions (i.e. groundwater level, long and heavy…

Assessment of stability of a Himalayan road cut slope with varying degrees of weathering: A finite-element-model-based approach
TLDR
The results indicated that the geometry of a slope influences the weathering grade, which in turn destabilizes the slope, which will help in engineering slope design considering the influence of weathering.

Abstract Localised landslide activity has been observed in the area of the plateau slope analysed, in the vicinity of the planned Warsaw Southern Ring Road. Using calculation models quantitative and
Numerical modelling of slope–vegetation–atmosphere interaction: an overview
The behaviour of natural and artificial slopes is controlled by their thermo-hydro-mechanical conditions and by soil–vegetation–atmosphere interaction. Porewater pressure changes within a slope
Stability Analysis of Earth Slope Using Combined Numerical Analysis Method Based on DEM and LEM
Based on a 2D discrete element method (PFC2D code) and limit equilibrium method, a new method is proposed to obtain critical slip surface and to determine the factor of safety of the slope model.
Capabilities of Continuous and Discontinuous Modelling of a Complex, Structurally Controlled Landslide
In order to assess the stability of a landslide, continuous or discontinuous models have been proposed. Here, we compare the two methods in their capability to provide a reliable hazard assessment.

The engineering geology and hydrogeology in the southern slope of Chengmenshan copper mine are very complicated, because there is a soft-weak layer between two kinds of sandstones. Field
Numerical Study of Slope-Stabilizing Piles in Undrained Clayey Slopes with a Weak Thin Layer
AbstractThis paper presents a numerical study using three-dimensional (3D) finite-element (FE) analyses for slopes that contain a weak thin layer and are reinforced with piles. The presence of a thin
