Study on Mechanism of Slope Instability with Weak Interlayer
In the process of the highway building, especially in mountain region the some complex geological conditions often appears. In this paper, using the slope of highway with weak interlayer as the research subject, systematically analyzing the stress field and plastic field during the excavation of the slope, obtained the failure mechanism of the slope with weak interlayer, which is a cyclic process that weak interlayer shear failure led to the tensile failure of its upper mass rock. It has extraordinarily important guiding significance for the protection and reinforcement of similar slope.
