Natural slope
Similar to trench
For access to the slope, you need to build an access tunnel
Excavation Slopes
Behind or outside the dam
Dam and Embankment
Surface Mine
Underground mine
Mine Slops
Artificial Slope
Two types
Types of Slopes
Dip Direction
Define the following for next class:
Typical Slope Shape
Type of Failure
Wedge is only for hard rock
Fundamental assumption at their core is that failure occurs through sliding of a block
or mass along a slip surface
Not used as much, since numerical methods are easier
Limit-equilibrium Method (LEM)
Numerical Methods
Two types of methods
Calculate Factor of Safety (FoS)
