Stability charts are presented to facilitate the computation of the factor of safety of earth slopes during rapid drawdown. As the reservoir level is lowered, the factor of safety decreases if it be assumed that no dissipation of pore pressure occurs during drawdown. Pore pressures during...
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...
