Optimization Study on the Effect of Bolt Anchorage on Slope Stability by FEM
This paper presents the calculation optimization for two examples of anchored slope, in respect of structural plane involved failures and circular slides by finite element method (FEM). A Goodman contact element subprogram was independently developed and nested in the finite element analysis (FEA) to determine the optimum anchorage parameters such as the length of the rock bolts and the angle at which they are installed.
