  1. Slope Stability Crozet Tunnel 4281’

  2. Central America??

  3. Gros Ventre Slide, WY, 1925 (pronounced “grow vahnt”) 50 million cubic yards

  4. Earthquake Lake, MT, 1959 29 fatalities

  5. Nelson County, VA

  6. Madison County, VA

  7. Slope Stability • Stresses and Strength • Applies to all sloping surfaces • Balancing of driving and resisting forces • If Resisting forces > Driving Forces: stability

  8. Slope Stability • Stresses and Strength • Applies to all sloping surfaces • Balancing of driving and resisting forces • If Resisting forces > Driving Forces: stability • Engineering Approach • Delineate the surface that is most at risk • Calculate the stresses • Calculate the Shear Strength

  9. A Friendly Review From Last Month…… Stress on an inclined plane to Force σ = Force / Area Where is Normal Force and Shear Force = ?? cos Θ= a =Fn h = Fg sin Θ = o = Fs h=Fg Fn = Fg cos Θ Fs = Fg sin Θ

  10. Shear Stress Analysis Fn = Fg cos Θ Fs = Fg sin Θ Find the Shear stress What is behind this pretty little box???

  11. Shear Stress Analysis Fn = Fg cos Θ Fs = Fg sin Θ

  12. Consider a planar slide whose failure surface is ‘linear’…..

  13. II. Planar Slide—case 1 Volume of Slice = MO x PR x 0.5 x 1 ft

  14. II. Planar Slide—case 1 Volume of Slice = MO x PR x 0.5 x 1 ft

  15. Sa = Shear Stress Sa = W sin β W = Fg Fn = Fg cos β Fs = Fg sin β

  16. Sa = W sin β Sr = Shear Resistance = (Friction + Cohesion)

  17. Sa = W sin β Fn = Fg cos β Fs = Fg sin β Sr = Friction + Cohesion = W cos β tan ϕ + c * (segment MO) Sr = W cos β tan ϕ + cL

  18. Factor of Safety Fs = Sr = W cos β tan ϕ + cL Sa = W sin β

  19. Sa = shear stress Sa = W sin β

  31. Slides: Rotational (slump)

  32. III. Rotational Slide—case 1

  33. III. Rotational Slide—case 1 • The process • Determine volume of each slice • Determine the weight of each slice

  34. III. Rotational Slide—case 1 • The process • Determine volume of each slice • Determine the weight of each slice • Calculate the driving and resisting forces • of each slice • Sum ‘em up and let it rip!

  35. III. Rotational Slide—case 1 “should use a minimum of 6 slices”

  36. For Slice 1: 11’ x 20’ x 1’ = 220 ft3 220 ft3 x 100 lbs/ft3 = 22,000 lbs.
