The first step is to calculate the safety factor of a slip surface using limit equilibrium theory.
Theoretically, the distribution of the slip surface normal stress in global analysis methods should be easier to understand than the distribution of interslice force in the Morgenstern-Price method.
The method allows two different critical slip surfaces for the two slides of the pile, and the forces acting on the stabilizing piles are estimated based on a given critical slip surface where the safety factor is prescribed to ensure slope stability.
To design a soil slope that is reinforced with piles, engineers and technicians are concerned with two significant parameters: the load that a pile should sustain and the location of the slip surface for the slope with piles under a prescribed factor of safety.
The slip surface achieved from FLAC model give overall minimum factor ofsafety and it is the area where actually displacement oflandslide occurs.
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.
Thus, the cut stresses along the most resistant slip surface should be calculated and compared with soil cut (section) resistance.
When the stability of slope is calculated by using the limit equilibrium theory, the most prominent problem is the failure mode of slope and the most dangerous slip surface of slope position; in general, this problem is no longer difficult.
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. In this paper, we have studied this type of stability with the traditional method of soil mechanics (limit state equilibrium) [4] and then confronted it with the results of numerical simulation.
Chugaev's method is based on the following simplification: force pressing the moving mass of slope to slip surface [F.sub.gn] is substituted by gravity force of the mass [F.sub.g] (Fig.
The technique of this order consists in bringing back the trajectory of state of a system towards slip surface then to make commutation by the intermediary of a logic of adapted commutation, up to the point of balance [5].
