APPLICATION OF STABILITY ANALYSES TO SLOPE DESIGN
At present many types of slope stability analyses are available in the literature but only a few of the methods have gained popularity among designers. The paper presents a discussion on the types of analysis commonly used in design, their applicability to new and corrective design problems, inherent limitations, accuracy with regard to slope stability prediction, sensitivity to material behavior, and usefulness as a design tool.
