1. Solutin :

1. Fall. This is the detachment of soil and/or rock fragments that


fall down a slope (Figure 15.1). Figure 15.2 shows a fall in which a
large amount of soil mass has slid down a slope.

2. Topple. This is a forward rotation of soil and/or rock mass about


an axis below the center of gravity of mass being displaced
(Figure 15.3).

4. Spread. This is a form of slide (Figure 15.7) by translation. It


occurs by sudden movement of water-bearing seams of sands or
silts overlain by clays or loaded by fills (Cruden and Varnes,
1996).

4. Solution :

1. The factor of safety for three-dimensional analysis is greater than


the factor of safety for two-dimensional analyses. The only
studies that indicate otherwise are those by Hovland (1977),
Chen and Chameau (1983), and Seed et al. (1990). Hovlands
analyses were based on an extension of the Ordinary Method of
slices, which is inaccurate because it assumes zero normal stress
on vertical surfaces. Azzouz and Baligh (1978) showed that
results calculated using this method are illogical for some
conditions, and that extension of the Ordinary Method of Slices is
not an adequate approach to 3-D analysis. Hutchison and Sarma
(1985), Cavounidius (1987), and Hungr (1987) questioned some
of the assumptions used by Chen and Chameau, found that F3
was greater than F2 rather than smaller, as Chen and Chameau
had found. Seed et al. (1990) compared results of 2D and 3D
analyses that did not satisfy all conditions of equilibrium. The
horizontal force imbalance in their approximate 3D analysis was
3.7% of the weight of the sliding mass. Because the friction
angles along the slip surface they studied were so small (8 to
9), this force imbalance could result in as much as a 25%
difference in the calculated factor of safety. Thus, all of the cases
where F3 was found to be smaller than F2 appear to involve
significant potential inaccuracies.

2. Hutchinson and Sarma (1985) and Leshchinsky and baker (1986)


pointed out that 2D and 3D analyses should give the same factor
of safety for slopes in homogeneous cohesionless soils, because
the critical slip surface is a shallow plane parallel to the surface
of the slope.

3. Azzouz et al. (1981), and Leshchinsky and Huang (1992) noted


that, if 3D effects are neglected in analyses to back calculate
shear strengths; the back calculated strengths will be too high.
