How does the slope angle play a role in slope stability? The test does not measure “friction angle” or “cohesion,” as these values are parameters that are derived from the test results. Typically, the total internal friction angle (ϕ) is negligible and assumed to be zero (ϕ = 0) in cohesive materials. For clay, internal friction will be zero as because it depends on grain size. In determining equivalent cohesion and friction angle for the curved Hoek-Brown failure envelope, it is important to use stress ranges relevant to the particular slope. endobj h�ܗms�6�?A��^��IW���aHHhC„���4/��؜-8r����&8si�]�c��V�J��� |ƙ�-,C�x���e���`nș��>9�G(��-2\&|]���ǟ����y1^�Ie�g��݆��:�XQ����s��~�)��;z~����3k��Sj��e:��|2��F�}��[��n�à��ƥ�2��#=��s�r�S�#6��R�1d�;��x��o��}^�}��w��w���vʉ�B�xu!��B1�q�a� << stream endstream endobj 358 0 obj <>stream :������ݖj�U%��\W�Vs�d�U��4@=���Tk?rM{���5ǖ�B-Jk� +�Q�W_�(�:��8��w�y����ёᕓ|�^>�D$�l�Vs�v؉��̡?,�}�\� \�4��v�H� ���.�:Y�4a�c�b�.ߡ�N��q� /Img1 20 0 R soil mechanics is based on Mohr-Coulomb equation and they both imply that, friction and cohesion endobj Ԏ = C.
