ON THE STABILITY OF SLOPES WITH A VERTICAL FACE /IN ITALIAN/

AFTER A BRIEF REVIEW OF RESULTS CONCERNING THE STABILITY OF VERTICALLY FACED SLOPES, THE BASIS OF CALCULATION IS DISCUSSED. THE TENSILE STRESS AT THE SUMMIT, USUALLY ACCEPTED AS THE ORIGIN OF FAILURE, IS SHOWN INSTEAD TO BE A PHASE OF A FAILURE ALREADY IN PROGRESS. THE ORIGIN OF THE FAILURE IS IDENTIFIED WITH THE OCCURRENCE OF THE LIMIT SITUATION AT THE FOOT OF THE WALL. SOME VALUES FOR THE COEFFICIENT OF STABILITY OF THE WALL ARE GIVEN, AS ARE THE POSSIBLE FORM AND LOCATION OF THE FAILURE SURFACES FOR COHESIVE SOILS AND NON-COHESIVE SOILS. /RRL/
