This model contains a simple case of a total stress analysis for finding the minimum factor of safety in the analysis of the shown slope without considering pore-water pressures.

The analysis methods used for studying this model are:
Ordinary,
Bishop,

The search for the critical slip surface is grid and tangent and the slip surface shape is circular. The grid and tangent methodology is one of the more common methods of determining the critical circular slip surface. In this methodology the trial slip surfaces are specified by a grid of centers and a set of lines to which the circular slip surface must be tangent.
