A COMPARISON ON SLOPE STABILITY ANALYSIS OF AYDOGHMOOSH EARTH DAM BY LIMIT EQUILIBRIUM, FINITE ELEMENT AND FINITE DIFFERENCE METHODS (2012)
In this paper the slope stability of Aydoghmoosh earth dam situated in the north west of Iran is evaluated by various methods of limit equilibrium, finite element and finite difference. Among numerous limit equilibrium methods, Simplified Bishop, Janbu and Spencer are selected so that cover a wide range from simplest to most complicated. The results of all methods are compared together and advantages/disadvantages of them are also discusse.
