Slope Stability Analysis using Genetic Algorithm

Mohanty, Anurag (2009) Slope Stability Analysis using Genetic Algorithm. BTech thesis.



Analysis of stability of slopes is of utmost importance as its failure may lead to loss of lives and great economic losses. Failure of a mass located below the slope is called a slide. It involves downward and outward movement of entire mass of soil that participates in failure. Slides may occur in almost nay conceivable manner slowly or suddenly, with or without apparent provocation. In the present day lots of methods are available to the modern engineer to obtain the stability of slopes. Some are quite rigorous, while some are expensive. In this project a comparative of study of such methods has been done with special stress on the application of GA in the analysis of slope stability.
