Abstract

Deterministic and probabilistic analysis of the stability of gentle infinte slopes subject to seismically induced excess pore pressures and inertia forces are developed. In the deterministic analysis, classical equations for infinite slope stability are rewritten to explicitly include excess pore pressure and seismic acceleration. In the probabilistic analysis, the seismic acceleration, excess pore pressure, and effective friction angle are considered random variables. Results from both analysis are compared to documented case histories of lateral spreading.
