This paper investigates the stability of fill slopes often found in embankment cases where frictional fill materials are placed on purely cohesive undrained clay with increasing strength. By using finite element upper and lower bound limit analysis for this investigation, the limit load can be truly bounded. It is known that two-dimensional analysis yields a more conservative result due to plain strain condition when compared to three-dimensional analysis. Therefore, this paper will focus on… Expand
