There is a naturally higher tendency for a slip surface to slide along a particular direction, and Slide3 uses the available input parameters in the equation to help determine this direction.
When a weak layer exists (the strength of a layer is relatively weak) in a slope, the slip surface of the soil slides along the weak layer (Griffiths and Marquez [14]; Huang et al.
Thus, the cut stresses along the most resistant slip surface should be calculated and compared with soil cut (section) resistance.
If there was no non slip surface, pool users would be at a greater risk of potentially more serious injury such as concussions and fractures.
To avoid the overall internal failure (ground-strip-facing), we have to determine the maximum tensile forces developed in the reinforcements and the geometry of the critical slip surface.
Chugaev's method is based on the following simplification: force pressing the moving mass of slope to slip surface [F.

Rotary failure with an are slip surface can occur in homogeneous soil slopes, landfill slopes and rock slopes with a prosperous fissure.
Naylor [13] defined the safety factor on circular slip surface as the ratio of the sum of antislide force to the sum of sliding force for the whole sliding surface.
When it comes to floor tiles, look for products that are mosaic or have an anti slip surface, to minimise the risk of slipping on a wet surface.
These create a safe step with the gritted anti slip surface and hi-viz nosing.
