Abstract

The slope stability analysis are performed to assess the safe and economic design ofa human-made or natural slopes such as embankments, road cuts, open-pit mining, excavations, landfills in equilibrium conditions. These studies are to solve the problem for determine the factor of safety (FOS) of the soil stability analysis without conduct any soil investigation orsoil exploration where it is costly and timeconsuming. The long term objective ofthis whole research is to implement a quick method of assessing the FOS in slopes by replacing the conventional soil parameters such as cohesion and internal angle of friction with electrical parameters such as electrical resistivity. The laboratory test using basic multimeter were conducted by testing on soil sample with different Particle Size Distribution (PSD) of soil and with different soil water content. Results from the laboratory test of the electrical resistivity indicated that they were consistencies in the correlation between the resistivity and soil properties. It shows that the electrical resistivity decreases when the increment water content in soil sample. The changes in electrical resistivity and varying water content can easily predicted the type of soil and can be determine the strength of the soil because water content in soil will change the soil formation; the water will either absorbed or expelled from the soil mass, which eventually affects to the shear strength of the soils.
