Computer Aided Stability Analysis of Slopes

Abstract: For the analysis of stability of slopes numerous methods are available. This particular paper contains the study of different methods by using computer programming in C, VBA and Auto CAD. The developed computer programs not only yield the accurate results but also save our time and energy. A comparison of the result obtained from different methods, reveal that the values of minimum factor of safety are in close agreement. But among all the methods friction circle method gives more reliable results.

Introduction:

The boundary surface of soil mass inclined to horizontal and exposed to atmosphere or in contact with free water is called a Slope.

5. Limit Analysis Method.

In this paper computer program in VBA and C programming for above methods have been developed. The actual study has been done in four parts given below.

PART A: Programming in VBA

In this part the program is done for Friction Circle Method in computer language VBA from AutoCAD software.

As Friction Circle satisfies Culmann’s failure criterion long the assumed failure surface, which may be circular arc, straight line or any other irregular surface. It also comes under the category limit equilibrium method since solving friction circle method manually is a very tedious and time consuming job, so computerized program can used to solve it.

PART B: Programming in C

In this part the programs are done for Taylor’s Stability Number and Limit Analysis Method.

The friction circle method is graphical procedure that can be used for analyzing the stability of homogeneous slopes. It was popularized by Taylor in 1937. With the help of results obtained by this method, graphs were plotted between angle of inclination and stability number to calculate factor of safety. And the method is known as Taylor’s Stability Number. Hence estimating the factor of safety against slope instability is more convenient by Taylor’s Stability Number with the help of Taylor than the Friction Circle*…show more content…*

PART D: Comparison of Various Methods

The various methods are studied and solving the problems by keeping a data constant for all methods. The results obtained from various methods in compared to each one.

In the present work, it is discuss on the following points-

1. The steps or algorithm to prepare the program to estimate the factor of safety in a software language.

2. Results obtained for factor of safety using computer programming in C language.

1. Factor of safety with respect to cohesion for c-Φ soil.

2. Factor of safety with respect to cohesion for cohesive soil (i.e., Φ=0) using depth factor.

3. Factor of safety with respect to both cohesion and friction for c-Φ soil.

Though the binary phase diagram of Cu-Ti indicates the occurrence of various Cu-Ti intermetallic phases with increasing Cu content, the low melting point of copper encourages improved contact area in the mating surfaces. The nature and the localization of intermetallic phases in these welds have been studied by EDS, XRD and micro hardness measurements. The local accumulation of Cu3–Ti and Fe30CuMn30 based phase is less detrimental to the strength of the welds, which makes joining possible

## Adomian Decomposition Method Analysis

1069 Words | 5 PagesIntroduction: Most of the engineering problems are nonlinear and therefore some of them are solved using numerical methods and some are solved using the different analytic methods. One of semi-exact methods which does not need linearization or discretization is Adomian Decomposition Method (ADM) [see Bellman and Adomian [1];Adomian(1994)]. .The objective of the decomposition method is to make physically realistic solutions of complex systems without the usual modeling and solution compromises to achieve tractability. This method is a powerful technique, which provides an efficient algorithm for analytic approximate solutions and numeric simulations for real-world applications in the applied science and engineering, particularly in the practical solution of the linear or nonlinear and deterministic or stochastic operator equations, including ordinary and partial differential equation, integral equations, integro-differential equations, etc. Adomian decomposition method has been employed by Gejji and Jafari [2] to obtain solutions of a system of fractional differential equations and also discussed the convergence of the method.
