Abstract

Strength equilibrium slopes are rock slopes whose gradient théta and rock mass strength (RMS) are in adjustement. The identification of such slopes depends on the accurate specification of the strength equilibrium envelope. Previous attempts to delimit the envelope are reviewed and modifications are proposed that permit its more rigorous statistical definition. The structural relation between the variables is estimated by regressing RMS on O, and the strength equilibrium envelope is defined by the 95 per cent confidence limits. The analysis is performed on a data set of 268 rock slopes
