Study on the Critical Height of Homogeneous Clay Slope
Small cohesion clay slope is possible to slide along the plane slip surface or log-spiral slip surface. Based on the upper bound theory and energy principle, this paper deduced the critical height of the inclined top clay slope. The sliding mode of plane slip surface and log-spiral slip surface is studied. Finally, an engineering example is analyzed and the critical height calculation is introduced.
