S u =350 kPa S u =200 kPa h=40 W=18000 kN/m CE 728 Geotechnical Earthquake Engineering Department of Civil Engineering Middle East Technical University, Ankara,Turkey Assoc. Prof. Dr. K. Önder Çetin 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 M w =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
