Abstract

This paper exammines some of the limitations in current practices, and presents an alternative approach using an adapted version of the distributed slope hydrology and stability model developed by Anderson and Lloyd (1991). The new scheme incorporates the major mechanical and hydrological effects of vegetation relevant to slope stability in a humid tropical environment. Using this model structure, a series of applications have been carried out to assess the complex stability responses to using vegetation on slopes
