This problem is to illustrate a plasticity solution for a weightless frictionless slope subjected to a vertical load. This problem was first solved by Prandtl (1921).

The analysis methods used for studying this model are:
M-P (Interslice Force Function - Trapezoid), and
GLE (Interslice Force Function - Trapezoid).

The search for the critical slip surface is fully specified surface shape is non-circular. The fully specified method allows the user to completely specify the geometry of the analyze slip surface. This method is particularly useful for a back analysis in which the location of the slip surface is well known. The surface is defined by defining the center coordinates and radius of the critical surface.
