Anis Bhd has determined its optimal capital structure that is composed of the following sources and target market value proportions. Debt: The firm can sell a 15-year, RM1,000 par value,….
Determine the minimum factor of safety of the slope, using Taylor’s chart (Figure 5.41).
A natural slope is shown in Figure 5.41. It contains two soil strata. The
slope configuration and the soil characteristics are shown in the figure.
A potential toe circle with radius of 70.0 m passes the coordinate of
(65 m, 30 m). The toe is at the origin (0, 0).
(1) Determine the average cohesion, friction angle, and unit weight of
the slope and foundation soils.
(2) Determine the factor of safety of the slope along the assumed fail-
(3) Determine the minimum factor of safety of the slope, using Taylor’s
chart (Figure 5.41).
