Example (1) The procedure for finding the FoS is as follows: The value of the difference in dip between two planes is calculated: 750- 450=300 From the different charts available. the two chart that correspond to the value of 300 are selected. The value of the difference in dip direction between the two planes is calculated: 2250-1150=1100 On the abscissa axis of Chart a) a line is projected from this value of 1100 to intersect the line corresponding to the dip of plane A.1 0.753 1.687 0.10 The same procedure is applied to plane B on chart b) to obtain 0. giving a reading of the value of parameter A on the ordinate axis of 1.09 .45. the FoS can be calculated with the friction angle values of the two planes.45 0. Once the values of A and B have been found. the value of parameter B. F a tan A B tan B 1.

Example (2) Determine the factor of safety against sliding of the block DBC. Assume block ABD is table .
