Sliding surface searching method for slopes containing a potential weak structural surface
Journal of Rock Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering
Weak structural surface is one of the key factors controlling the stability of slopes. The stability of rock slopes is in general concerned with set of discontinuities. However, in soft rocks, failure can occur along surfaces approaching to a circular failure surface. To better understand the position of potential sliding surface, a new method called simplex-finite stochastic tracking method is proposed. This method basically divides sliding surface into two parts: one is described by smoothdoi:10.1016/j.jrmge.2014.03.004 fatcat:4inmv2lw2vduropbl7orh3xnhu
