Textbook Problem

The following parameters are given for a slope with steady-state seepage. Slope angle: 2H: l V, *ϕ*′ = 24°, *c*′ = 42 kN/m^{2}, γ = 19.3 kN/m^{3}, *H* = 14 m, and *r _{u}* = 0.5. Determine the factor of safety,

To determine

Find the factor of safety

Explanation

**Given information:**

The inclination of the slope is

The height (*H*) is 14 m.

The unit weight

To soil friction angle

The cohesion

The non–dimensional quantity

**Calculation:**

Determine the inclination angle using the formula.

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

Determine the value of

Consider the factor of safety

Substitute *H*.

Similarly, calculate and tabulate the value of

Determine the factor of safety
