Title:
Reliablity-based design of slope angle considering spatial variability of soil material 
Abstract:
This paper presents a methodology for reliability-based design of slopes, taking into account the spatial variability of the strength parameters of the soil material. The objective is evaluation of the optimal slope angle for a given reliability constraint related to the stability of the slope. The corresponding performance function is expressed in terms of the factor of safety, computed by applying a strength reduction technique to a 2-dimensional elasto-plastic finite element model. The optima...    »
