Seismic Stability Analysis of an Urbanized Natural Slope

Ahmed Seddiki, Mohamed Khemissa


This paper presents the results of slope stability calculations carried out on an urbanized natural slope located in Aomar city (wilaya of Bouira, Algeria), of which rupture caused important damages in the slope itself and in the surrounding works. These calculations aim at analyzing the probable causes of rupture of the slope (seism, groundwater table, loading upstream, unloading downstream) in order to propose the adequate measurements of stabilization. Computation results obtained show that it is the combined action of several negative factors which started the slipping.
