Abstract

ANALYSIS OF EARTH SLOPES SUBJECTED TO CHANGE IN WATER CONTENT USING CENTRIFUGE MODELLING

Endalkachew Mergia Anbese* and Prof. Ashish Juneja

ABSTRACT

This paper discusses the results of soil slope stability using a small beam centrifuge. Model slopes were prepared using residual soils, compacted at dry state. Properties of the soil used in this study are discussed first. The slopes were prepared by tamping the soil in a small, strong box made of perspex. A perforated water tank was placed behind the slope to permit the seepage of water through the soil. The provision was made to collect the water above the base plate. The slope angle was varied from 60 to 75°, and the slope was examined in different water content conditions. Digital images were captured at fixed intervals and analyzed. The result from the parametric studies shows the quantitative data points of Stability number at different gravity scale. It was observed that the relationships obtained in this study, are comparable to Taylor's Stability number.
