Bishop slope stability using excel spreadsheet

Bishop slope stability using excel spreadsheet

Bishop slope stability using excel spreadsheet

Can anyone give me an indication were to find a code/example for compiling an Excel spreadsheet to conduct a Bishop's slope stability analysis ?

RE: Bishop slope stability using excel spreadsheet

Pls refer to Low's paper in 1998, Vol, 124, No4,
Slope reliability analysis using generalized methods of slices

RE: Bishop slope stability using excel spreadsheet

can any i comment on analysing the flow slides

RE: Bishop slope stability using excel spreadsheet

What is the periodical title for Low's Paper? Thanks

RE: Bishop slope stability using excel spreadsheet

ASCE Journal of Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Engineering, Vol. 124, No. 4, April 1998, pp. 350-362.  The paper is titled, "Slope Stability Analysis Using Generalized Method of Slices" by B.K. Low, R.B. Gilbert, and S.G. (Stephen) Wright.  Steve Wright did his PhD dissertation at UC Berkeley on slope stability.

Please see FAQ731-376 for tips on how to make the best use of Eng-Tips Fora.

RE: Bishop slope stability using excel spreadsheet

The following additional two papers should also can help to perform stability analysis by spreadsheets:

Low, B. K. (1996). ¡°Practical probabilistic approach using spreadsheet¡±. Proceedings of Uncertainty in Geologic Environment: from Theory to Practice, ASCE Geotechnical Special Publication, Vol. 2, No. 58, pp. 1284-1302.

Low, B. K., and Tang, W. H. (1997a). ¡°Reliability analysis of reinforced embankments on soft ground¡±. Canadian Geotechnical Journal, Vol. 34, No. 5, pp.672-685.

Thanks for the cites.
