Abstract

The conventional landslide calculation is obtaining a specific stability safety factor by using limit equilibrium method or strength reduction method based on the given strength parameters of soil. Although the M-C(Monte-Carlo) method provides a path to predict instability probability of landslide, in the traditional application of M-C to calculate the probability of landslide failure, the value c, of soils are considered to obey normal distribution. In fact, the value c, obeys various distribution under different kinds of cases. This paper discussed the calculation of landslide failure probability of soil parameters under different distribution types. The results show that the instability probability calculated under the form of normal distribution which the value of c, obeyed is lower than that under the logarithm normal distribution. The proposed method can improved the calculation accuracy of instability probability of landslide and had certain reference value for the calculation of the landslide instability probability.
