<p>Slope is an exposed ground surface that stands at an angle with the horizontal. Slopes are required in the construction of highway and railway embankments, earth dams, levees, canals etc., and are generally less expensive. Failure of natural slopes and ...

<p>Despite some preliminary developments for Slope Management Systems (SMS) for the South African Road Network, no functional SMS has been implemented. Slopes along important strategic routes are generally not monitored and only maintained on a reactive basis. ...

Significant research has been performed in recent years to develop load and resistance factor design (LRFD) methods for geotechnical applications. However, one lacking aspect of this work is application to design of earth slopes, including consideration of ...

The soil masses of slopes were assumed to follow a nonlinear failure criterion and a nonassociated flow rule. The stability factors of slopes were calculated using vertical slice method based on limit analysis. The potential sliding mass was divided into a ...
