Paper Title:
Slope Stability Analysis Using Unified Strength Theory
  Abstract

Numerical computations using finite difference method and unified strength theory are reported to analyze the slope stability problem. The Factor of safety of plane strain and axisymmetric slopes was calculated by strength reducing method, and the influences of intermediate principal stress on slope stability problem was analyzed. The associative and non-associative flow rule was taking into account in plane strain slope problem analysis. The intermediate principal stress has equivalent influences on slope stability problem under associative and non-associative flow rule. The Factor of safety of plane strain slope is lower than the axisymmetric situation. The influence of intermediate principal stress on slope stability under plane strain condition is heavier than axisymmetry.
