# Swedish Circle Method For Analyzing The Slope Stability

Swedish Circle Method Swedish circle method for analyzing the slope stability: This method was first introduced by Fellenius (1926) for the analysis of slope stability of C-φ soil. In this method, the soil mass above the assumed slip circle is divided into a number of vertical slices of equal width. The forces between the slices … Continue reading Swedish Circle Method For Analyzing The Slope Stability
