Methods for Homogeneous Slopes

  • Yang H. Huang


The normal and the simplified Bishop methods presented so far are based on the method of slices. However, the friction circle method, originally proposed by Taylor (1937), considers the stability of the entire sliding mass as a whole. The disadvantage of the friction circle method is that it can only be applied to a homogeneous slope with a given angle of internal friction. Although this method is of limited utility, an understanding of it will give insight into the problem of stability analysis.
