HW#14 - Stability Chart Solutions

Use the spreadsheet solution and the stability charts for the phi=0 case in the Appendix of the textbook to solve the following problems:

(1) Submerged slope. Remember that Hw should not be greater than H or you will overcompensate the pore pressures.

(2) Slope with surcharge.

(3) Slope with two materials.

(4) Design problem. Find the slope angle (beta) with a minimum factor of safety = 1.5.



Submittal Instructions
