ASSIGNMENT 7 Seismic Slope Stability
1.
By using Makdisi and Seed (1978) simplified procedure, estimate seismically
induced embankment deformations due to an earthquake of moment magnitude

=7.5, which was predicted to produce a crest acceleration of 0.8 g at the below
shown 40 m high homogeneous earthfill dam.
Not to scale
2.
For the above case, now predict the crest accelerations yielding to embankment
