Abstract

Stability analysis has always been a critical issue in geotechnical engineering. Many of the design works by engineers are actually based on the ultimate condition which can be assessed without the need of the initial condition and sophisticated constitutive models. A brief introduction about the stability analysis will be given in this chapter.
