Identify each one of these using the attached PRA classification chart. In each case explain your method and show how you reached these answers.

3. Investigate by the slip circle technique the stability of the bank shown below. Assume that a slope failure most likely to occur. The condition selected is considered to be the worst case. Analyze, and determine the factor of safety for:

a) Dry soil

b) Saturated soil

c) What would be the maximum weight of a building on top is permissible under dry soil conditions for a factor of safety of 1.5?
