Consider a 2-D object consisting of two triangle compartments, as shown in Figure P9.4. Suppose a solution containing a 511 KeV gamma ray emitting radionuclide with concentration f = 0.5….
Determine the minimum factor of safety of the slope using Taylor’s chart.
A saturated and undrained clayey slope is 10-m high and the slope
angle is 40 degrees. Subsurface investigation found that the subsoil is
homogeneous clay with undrained cohesion of 110 kN∕m² and satu-
rated unit weight of 19.5 kN∕m³. A stiff soil layer exists 5 meters below
the toe of the slope. A potential toe circle with the radius of 20 meters
passes the coordinate of (25 m, 10 m). The toe is at the origin (0, 0).

the analytical mass method.
