Slope Stability Analysis by Peridynamic Theory
Peridynamic simulations have been carried out to perform the slope stability analysis. A slope is first modelled with discretized particles in 2D. Then the non-ordinary state-based Peridynamic model is utilized. In order to obtain a more realistic behavior of the soil, Drucker-Prager constitutive model is used to describe the mechanic properties of soil. Results show great agreements with the FEM results, while provides the dynamic slide progress in the post-failure process.
