This article includes an entire computer program, written in BASIC computer language. The program is a simplified version of programs which have been written for large computer systems. The program utilizes the modified Bishop method of slope stability analysis and can be used on small computers. This simplified or modified Bishop method is reasonably accurate for most purposes where the slope under analysis can be assumed to fail along a circular failure surface. This article is part of a series on CE Computing Basics.
