Slope stability is a very important criteria for earthen dams, especially during earthquake events. Though current practice considers both static and pseudo-static analysis, new approaches may be more accurate and effective for slope analysis. See our new paper, Seismic Slope Stability Analysis of a Hydraulic Fill Dam, for information on this new method.
