A simplified method is proposed for the stability analysis of clayey slopes subjected to pore pressure changes.

Abstract

A simplified method is proposed for the stability analysis of clayey slopes subjected to pore pressure changes. The method is based on the infinite slope model and takes advantage of an analytical solution to evaluate the changes in pore pressure at the potential (or pre-existing) failure surface directly from the pore pressure measurements at a piezometer which is installed above this surface. A case study documented in the literature is analysed as an application.
