This model demostrates the results of using a stress analysis on a slope to determine the location of the critical slip surface. The location of the critical slop surface is part of the "dynamic programming" technique.
This model is presented in the Unsaturated Soil Mechanics in Engineering Practice textbook.
Section 1.6.8 Example of Stress and Shear Strength Applications.
