CHART SOLUTIONS FOR ANALYSIS OF EARTH SLOPES

PRACTICAL CHART SOLUTIONS FOR THE SLOPE STABILITY PROBLEM ARE COMPILED AND THE USE OF THE SOLUTIONS RATHER THAN WITH THEIR DERIVATIONS ARE PRESENTED. MANY OF THE SOLUTIONS INTRODUCED APPEARED ORIGINALLY IN PUBLICATIONS NOT COMMONLY USED BY HIGHWAY ENGINEERS. WORKING ASSUMPTIONS AND PARAMETER DEFINITIONS OF EACH WRITER ARE GIVEN, THE WORKING CHARTS ARE INTRODUCED, AND EXAMPLE PROBLEMS ARE INCLUDED. THE CHART SOLUTIONS COVER A WIDE VARIETY OF CONDITIONS. THEY MAY BE USED TO RAPIDLY INVESTIGATE PRELIMINARY DESIGNS AND TO OBTAIN REASONABLE ESTIMATES OF PARAMETERS FOR MORE DETAILED PACKAGED COMPUTER SOLUTIONS; IN SOME CASES, THEY MAY BE USED IN THE FINAL DESIGN PROCESS. /AUTHOR/
