THE BEHAVIOR OF STATISTICALLY HETEROGENEOUS EXCAVATED EARTH SLOPES

The computer program which was originally developed for evaluating the behavior of earth slopes has been modified, extended, and further tested and documented. The program can now handle soil excavation problems, embankment problems, and in-plane elasticity problems. The constituent materials in each of these problem types may be layered in horizontal layers and taken as deterministic or statistically heterogeneous. The program uses an incremental procedure in the simulation of earthwork excavation or filling and thereby solves nonlinear problems in a piecewise linear manner.
