Risk and Reliability Assessment of Slopes

This paper first describes reliability analysis methods for estimating the safety of slopes. These range from limit equilibrium and FOSM analysis to finite element method (FEM) analysis and simulation. The second part describes use of observations to revise the input to reliability analysis via Bayesian analysis and the third part gives examples of application to slope management and maintenance strategy.
