<p>We present two case studies of rainfall-induced failure of engineered slopes. The traditional limit equilibrium and finite element methods are expanded to unsaturated conditions using a generalized effective stress framework. Because effective stress is ...

<p>Cobre Las Cruces mine extracts copper ore from a VMS deposit located in the well-known Iberian Pyrite Belt (IPB). Cobre Las Cruces is distinguished geologically from other IPB mines by the overlying strata, consisting of around 150 m of Tertiary soft marls ...

<p>The paper demonstrates that whereas often in seismic geotechnical design it is not realistically feasible to design with ample factor of safety against failure as is done in static design, an &ldquo;engineering&rdquo; apparent seismic factor of safety less ...

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 ...
