Slope Stability in a Dam Embankment

Application ID: 54461


A slope stability analysis is performed and the Factor of safety of the dam embankment is calculated by using the Shear Strength Reduction Technique. The pore water pressure is described with Darcy’s law and the Mohr-Coulomb constitutive model is used to describe the soil behavior.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
