    Chapter 3 SLOPE STABILITY AND SEEPAGE CONTROL MEASURES 3.1 General Slope stability is the potential of soil covered slopes to withstand and undergo movement. Stability is determined by the balance of shear stress and shear strength. A previously stable slope may be initially affected by preparatory factors, making the slope conditionally unstable. Triggering factors of a slope failure can be climatic events can then make a slope actively unstable, leading to mass movements. Mass movements

    straight line relationship. In the form of an equation, this relationship can be expressed as Y = α + βX + e In this equation, Y is the dependent variable, and X is the independent variable. α is the intercept of the regression line, and β is the slope of the regression line. e is the random disturbance term. The way to interpret the above equation is as follows: Y = α + βX (ignoring the disturbance term “e”) gives the average relationship between the values of Y and X. For example
