INVESTIGATION OF THE STABILITY OF HIGH SLOPES IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE SO-CALLED STRIP METHOD /IN GERMAN/

EQUATIONS ARE DERIVED FOR THE STRIP METHOD. THE FOLLOWING ADVANTAGES OVER PREVIOUS METHODS ARE: THE SLIDING SURFACES, INSTEAD OF BEING ONLY CIRCULAR CYLINDRICAL, CAN BE MANY SHAPES IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE GEOLOGICAL LAYERS; THE INTERNAL EARTH PRESSURES ON THE LATERAL SURFACES OF THE INDIVIDUAL STRIPS ARE CONSIDERED AT THE ONSET OF EQUILIBRIUM CONDITIONS; AND THE MATERIAL TO BE EXAMINED CAN BE OF VARYING COMPOSITION. THE EQUATIONS DERIVED ARE COMPARED WITH OTHERS USED. DETAILS ARE GIVEN OF A FORTRAN II PROGRAM WRITTEN FOR THE IBM 7090 COMPUTER FOR ONE OF THE EQUATIONS. FINALLY DISADVANTAGES OF THE STRIP METHOD ARE DISCUSSED AND REQUIREMENTS FOR BETTER SLOPE CALCULATION METHODS OUTLINED. /FG/RRL/
