Abstract

The study pertains to the pseudo-static stability analysis of zoned dams with geologic discontinuities in the foundation. Sequential unconstrained minimization technique in conjunction with Janbu's generalized procedure of slices has been used for finding the critical slip surface and the corresponding minimum factor of safety. The method has been found to be quite efficient in solving such problems.

Automated Slope Stability Analysis of Zoned Dams

St. Louis, Missouri

The study pertains to the pseudo-static stability analysis of zoned dams with geologic discontinuities in the foundation. Sequential unconstrained minimization technique in conjunction with Janbu's generalized procedure of slices has been used for finding the critical slip surface and the corresponding minimum factor of safety. The method has been found to be quite efficient in solving such problems.
