Abstract [en]

In order to assess the safe and functional design of road ways, buildings, bridges, dams, etc. Also to protect from structural damages and geological disasters. The landslide analysis is to conduct based on force resisting method by applying uniform loads on top of the hill to determine slope stability, instability, for with and without crack on clay soil is to be experimented and evaluate the mechanical properties such as elastic modulus, poison ratio, and shear strength. In addition, the numerical model is implemented to the crack initiation model such as tensile, bending and shear to identify the fracture behavior for Mode I and Mode II and determine the criteria of a stress concentration factor [Kt], stress intensity factor [KI], and crack mouth opening displacement values are analyzed theoretically and verify using ABAQUS. Experimental model shows good agreement with the simulation result.
