The application of the effective stress analysis to earth slopes has suffered through lack of a general solution such as that presented by Taylor (1937) for the total stress analysis. Recent developments in computing technique have been applied to the slip circle method and have made it possible to present the results of the effective stress analysis in terms of stability coeffcients from which the factor of safety can be rapidly obtained. Illustrations are given of the use of these coefficients with the distributions of pore pressure encountered in typical earth dams and cuts.
