Environmental Safety Analysis for Slope under the Situation with and without Load on Top Surface
In order to study the effect of dilation angle ψ to the stability of slope, a numerical model was founded in plane strain mode by FLAC3D for homogeneous soil slope. The safety factors and slip planes were obtained for different dilation angles, and the relationships of dilation angle, safety factor and slip plane were analyzed for different situations with and without load on the top surface.
