This is an example of a factor of safety evaluation of a reinforced earth slope or mechanical stabilized earth (MSE) slope with the app SimpleSlope.
Slopes inclination is 85º and heigth 6m of non cohesive soil, a dead load on top and several layers of 6 m long reinforcement (strips).
Factor of global safety is obtained applying Bishop's method of slices. Slope Stability by the Method of Slices.
After calculation, a report containing all relevant and detailled results can be created and sent to coworkers or clients. The calculation is carried out as well for a small earthquake. Water can be added as well to the slope. The app can be set up for using imperial units and SI units.
