    Abstract

    Any probabilistic approach to slope stability assessment requires an adequate statistical description of soil strength. Current statistical methods of strength description are unsuitable for this purpose. A statistical technique of soil strength description appropriate for the probabilistic assessment of slope stability in c′, φ′ soils under drained conditions is developed here. The technique is applied to a set of results from triaxial strength tests on residual soil materials. Techniques for assessing the adequacy of a statistical description are discussed.
