Abstract

Application of coupled modeling to slope stability assessment P. Prochazka* & J. Trckova* * Czech Technical University Institute of Rock Structure and Mechanics, Czech Academy of Sciences, Prague, Czech Republic Abstract A modeling in geotechnics investigates the mechanism of geotechnical ef- fects, a prediction of the stress and deformation changes during processes of underground constructions on some model samples (mathematical and physical models, "in situ" measurement etc.), and the application of pre- ventive measures. In this paper a parametric study is presented to involve in similarity coefficients the influence of loading in terrain. 1 Introduction Classical direct numerical methods of the FEM and BEM type provide distribution of stress and deformation fields in the soil body of the trial slope. On the other hand it is very cumbersome to determine a measure, which inform the designer about probability of failure of the slope. Moreover, numerical methods are burden
