I have a foundation about 3m deep which I want to excavate open cut. I have space available around the excavation so do not need to add the expense of an earth support system. But how to calculate a safe angle for the stability of the excavated face. The excavation is in sand and I plan to use tarpaulin covers to give some erosion protection during the construction of the foundation.
