Abstract: The purpose of this note is to draw the profession.s attention to a very simple approximate solution of the problem in question. From a comparison of the computed safety factors with those derived from rupture tests on five models and one experimental dam it can be concluded that the proposed analysis is sufficiently accurate for design purposes.
