Swedish Circle Method For Analyzing The Slope Stability

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 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 are … Continue reading Swedish Circle Method For Analyzing The Slope Stability

Difference Between Open Caissons and Pneumatic Caissons

Difference Between Open Caissons and Pneumatic Caissons Difference between well or open caissons and pneumatic caissons are as follows: 1. Structure ➤ Open caissons are box-type structures having their top and bottom open. ➤ Pneumatic caisson consists of an enclosure open at the bottom and closed at the top. 2. Cost ➤ Open caissons are … Continue reading Difference Between Open Caissons and Pneumatic Caissons
