Stability Analysis of Cutting Slope Reinforced with Anti-Slide Piles by FEM

Stability of cutting slopes reinforced by anti-slide piles is analyzed with finite element method (FEM) under the hypothesis of plane strain in this paper. The soil is idealized to be elastoplastic, obeying Mohr-Coulomb yield criterion. Equivalent sheet-pile is adopted in which the plastic bending failure will occur as soon as it reaches the ultimate allowable moment (UAM). The safety factor of the pile-reinforced slope is calculated through strength reduction method. The effects of types of piles, flexural rigidity (FR), UAM and location of piles-row on safety factor are discussed in this paper.
