The basic information about slope stability analysis is contained in Purdue University Water Resources Research Center Technical Report No. 17 by Carter, Lovell and Harr entitled 'Computer Oriented Stability Analysis of Reservoir Slopes'. (See W71-07058) This report extends the work in some important details. The first section deals with the most common example of an irregular sliding surface, viz., the sliding wedge. Computer programs accommodate a three-slope ground surface, a two soil profile, and a three slope sliding surface. The second section emphasizes the effect of changes in water level and pressure within and adjacent to the soil slope on the stability of the slope. (Author)
