STABILITY OF EARTH EMBANKMENTS

WHEN THE STABILITY OF AN EMBANKMENT IS BEING INVESTIGATED, THE DIFFERENCE IN THE FACTOR OF SAFETY DERIVED BY DIFFERENT METHODS OF ANALYSIS IS SHOWN TO DEPEND ON THE PORE-WATER PRESSURE, THE SLOPE OF THE EMBANKMENT, AND ON THE SHEAR STRENGTH PARAMETER OF THE SOIL AND ITS BULK DENSITY. STABILITY CHARTS, FROM WHICH SUITABLE EMBANKMENT SLOPES MAY BE CHOSEN, AND CHARTS FROM WHICH THE POSITION OF THE CRITICAL SLIP CIRCLE CAN BE DETERMINED, ARE GIVEN. /RRL/
