STABILITY OF SLOPES /IN GERMAN/

IN CONSIDERATIONS OF EQUILIBRIUM A FIGURE WILL NORMALLY BE OBTAINED GIVING THE DISTANCE FROM UNSTABLE EQUILIBRIUM. IT IS NECESSARY, HOWEVER, TO AGREE ON A DEFINITION OF THE STABILITY COEFFICIENT AND ON A METHOD OF CALCULATION, FOR ALL THESE DECISIONS SYSTEMATICALLY INFLUENCE THE STABILITY COEFFICIENT. IT IS ALSO DESIRABLE TO KNOW WHAT UNCERTAINTIES ARE HIDDEN IN POSSIBLE FLUCTUATIONS OF ASSUMED LOADS AND THE STRENGTH OF THE SOIL, AS WELL AS HOW THESE CAN BE DISCOVERED. /TRRL/
