Abstract: The use of probabilistic methods to describe soil properties has many applications. One such application that has been developed is in the area of probabilistic slope stability analysis. A model based on some of the factors of uncertainty of slope stability analysis and its application as a tool to assess the reliability of existing embankments and as design tool is discussed.
