Slope stability of fills

Slope stability of fills

(OP)
Hello
So a bunch of wise guys tried to make a cut through a slope which they didn't know what it was composed off , and then realized that the stability of the important road above the slope is in danger . They asked us to asses the stability of the slope which we discovered is composed of fill perhaps 8 m high ! eventually under the fill we found a succession of fresh limestone and DW schist. We only made one pressumeter test so i was wondering how could we compute the shear strength and weight of the fill ?

RE: Slope stability of fills

Well since you didn't test the fill, you will have to either go back to the field and take some tests or you will have to guess.
