Abstract

In this paper has been described a new procedure by which the characteristic limit state line of a geometrically known slope can be calculated. This approach is based on an intuition, applied to a deterministic evaluation of slope stability to look for a slope characteristic "failure curve". Subsequently, concerning probability perspective, has been considered Low's interpreting the reliability index. Linking prior studies together and to the Characteristic Resistance Envelope Procedure an Overall Approach has been developed. A simple computed case is included in order to show computing potentialities of this new approach. 1 Introduction Problems concerning slope stability analysis are one of the most explored fields in geotechnical stu
