Paper Title:
Stability Analysis of Slope with Arbitrary Sliding Surface on Multi Strata Using Minimum Potential Energy Principle
  Abstract

As a rule,the natural slope is not homogeneous,and its sliding surface is arbitrary. However,the common slope stability analysis methods used to assume shape of sliding surface and slope homogeneity,and the calculation process is so complex that accuracy of results is decreasing.In this study,the potential energy function of sliding body is established for slope with arbitrary sliding surface on multi strata.Using minimum potential energy principle, the displacement of sliding body can be got. Then based on Moore - Coulomb criterion and condition of force equilibrium in the sliding direction, the safety factor can be got directly. Case studies show: ①This slope stability analysis methods is valid.② Different definition of safety factor leads to different analysis result.
