USE OF CYCLOIDAL ARCS FOR ESTIMATING DITCH SAFETY: DISCUSSION

A CYCLOIDAL ARC METHOD WHICH WOULD LEND ITSELF TO QUICK CALCULATION OF A SETBACK DISTANCE FOR SURCHARGE LOADS SUCH AS BACKFILL STOCKPILES IS DISCUSSED. AN APPROACH WHICH WOULD AVOID PLACING ANY SURCHARGE ON THE PRISM BETWEEN THE FAILURE ARC AND THE TRENCH WALLS IS OUTLINED. EQUATIONS FOR THE CALCULATION OF SETBACK DISTANCE ARE PREVENTED AS IS ALSO A GRAPH ILLUSTRATING THE CALCULATION.
