Calculation of Slope Stability Anchoring Force by Using Inclined Slice Method
Generally, the slope stability anchoring force is calculated by using vertical slice methods. A more feasible algebraic expression for the calculation of slope stability anchoring force is presented herein, which is obtained from the force limit equilibrium conditions of inclined slices based on the concept of the inclined slice method. The examples described herein show that the results from the calculation of the anchor force by using this method are similar to those by using conventional methods such as Swedish slice method and simplified Bishop method if the slope stability and safety factor are given. In addition, calculation of the anchoring force is simplified by using this method with accurate results, making it significantly easy for engineers and technicians to familiarize with and apply.
