Document Type: Journal Paper


Computer program presented can solve great variety of slope stability problems; it is possible to analyze slope with any surface configuration, with one or two soil strata in any pattern, and with or without water table, pore pressures, increasing cohesion with depth, tension cracks, rigid base or loads anywhere on surface; computer will automatically search out minimum factor of safety, solving entire problem in few minutes.
