<p>Using a software package that can be used for either three or two-dimensional (2D) slope stability analyses of the same model we analyse the stability of columns (3D) or slices (2D) overlying a shear failure surface. The failure surface can be any shape, ...

<p>A complete kinematic analysis was conducted for the west slope at the Handlebar Hill mine using the Rocscience/Dips 6.0 software. The west slope was divided into three zones: W1 (south-west), W2 (mid-west) and W3 (north-west), which were then subdivided ...

Luo H. , He Y. et al.  
<p>There are several factors influencing the slope stability of open pit mine, and the common methods can be divided into the subjective weighting method and the objective weighting method. In this paper, we make comprehensive evaluation of slope stability ...

Xue D. , Li T. et al.  
<p>This paper presented the reactivated mechanism of Badu landslide according to site investigations, monitoring, finite element and limit equilibrium analyses.<br />Finite element analysis incorporating a stability analysis with the finite element stress-based ...
