Abstract

The principal features of sliding-type collapse, one of the most common failure modes in highway slope instability, are the existence of gently inclined joints or soft strata and tensile cracks on top of the slopes. Based on six major contributing factors of sliding-type collapses along the Ji’an-Gumalin Highroad slopes, a quick stability evaluation system was proposed to analyze the stability of slopes in different working conditions. The result shows that in its natural state, the collapsed masses are less stable, while under the influence of precipitation and seismicity, the collapsed masses are unstable, and factor of safety is lower due precipitation effect.
