THE FAILURE OF EMBANKMENT BY ROTATION

SULLA CRISI PER ROTAZIONE DEI TERRAPIENI

This article considers an embankment which is retained by a wall, and presents a procedure for calculating the tangential tension offered by the ground along a cylindrical surface having horizontal generating lines and a circular direction. The dimensions of the wall and the ground data are given, and the safety factor is calculated by means of a numerical model based on an exploration method. The equation has been programmed for computer calculation./TRRL/
