<p>Since the 1930s, the limit equilibrium (LE) approach has been used to analyse slopes. This approach makes use of a number of differing analysis methods depending on the type of problem (circular vs non-circular) to be solved and the required accuracy of ...

Conventional slope stability analysis uses various Limit Equilibrium (LE) methods to determine the minimum factor of safety and its associated critical failure mechanism. These methods frequently assume that collapse will follow a particular assumed geometry, ...
