Textbook Problem

Refer to Figure 15.52. Using Taylor’s stability chart (Figure 15.21), determine the factor of safety, *Fs*, against sliding for a slope with the following characteristics: 1.75 H: 1 V, γ = 19 kN/m^{3}, *ϕ'* =22*°*,* H =* 24 m, and *c'* = 25 kN/m^{2}

To determine

Find the factor of safety

Explanation

**Given information:**

The inclination of the slope is

The unit weight

To soil friction angle

The height (*H*) of the retaining wall is 24 m.

The cohesion

**Calculation:**

Determine the inclination angle

Substitute 1 for *y* and 1.75 for *x*.

Take the angle of friction

Determine the factor of safety

Substitute

Similarly, calculate and tabulate the factor of safety

Determine the cohesion per unit area developed using the relation.

Here, *m* is the stability number.

Refer Figure (15.21) “Taylor’s stability number” in the text book.

Take the stability number as 0.052 when the soil friction angle is

Similarly, take and tabulate the stability number for the remaining angle of friction

Substitute 0.052 for m, *H*
