Circular Failure Analysis for Slopes Made up of Homogeneous Material – A Review


Circular failure analysis for slopes aims at determining critical factor of safety for an existing slope and/or designing of a new slope. There are various analytical and numerical techniques for calculation of factor of safety. Each technique has its own limitations, applicability conditions and a priori assumptions. An effort has been made to review the various analytical methods and to identify suitable ones for stability analysis of homogeneous slopes, and the outcomes have been presented in this paper.
