For the embankments in terrestrial site and an angle of friction p taken equal to the minimal characteristic value of 36[degrees], the coefficient [f.
In this case the change of internal angle of friction has an effect on the slope of failure surfaces, and the model of mixed failure with elliptic pressure is the most unfavourable by giving the greatest tension forces in the reinforcements and the smallest factors of safety.
75 mm developed, and also from previous investigation (Table 1) safe bearing capacity, angle of friction, unit weight and cohesive of mixed soils sample for computerize model have been used, the Geo-Slope and origin software in calculation and identification of models behavior employed and the result of these research work by interpretation of mixed soil types characteristics and slope computerized model evaluated.
In the mixed soil type 3 due to consist of high level of soil cohesion, internal angle of friction and unit weight, maximum factor of safety is appeared.
