Article Preview

The objective of this research is to study the relationships between the stability of earth dam and its soil strength parameters. The soil strength parameters include cohesion, unit weight of soil and angle of friction. GeoStudio, commercially available software, was used to obtain the overall factor of safety using limit equilibrium method (LEM) and finite element method (FEM). Tables to show the relationships among soil strength parameters for factor of safety 1.0 and 1.5 are presented in this paper.
