INFLUENCE OF THE CONDITIONS OF SURFACES OF LEAST RESISTANCE IN A ROCK MASS ON SLOPE STABILITY

VLIYANIE POLOZHENIYA POVERKHNOSTEJ OSLABLENIYA V MASSIVE NA USTOJCHIVOST' OTKOSOV

The results of a study are presented, which links the stability of a slope to the dip of the surfaces of least resistance and to their distance from the upper edge of the slope. The corresponding safety coefficient diminishes when the dip increases from 0 deg to 40 deg. When the dip continues to increase up to 80 deg, the safety coefficient increases with respect to its minimum value. Above 80 deg dip the surfaces of least resistance no longer influence stability.
