Submit plots of the final embankment geometry, clearly identifying with labels the different stages of construction. b. Determine and report the factor of safety after the second construction stage using the safety analysis option (phi-c reduction method). Do the same for the final (long-term) factor of safety. c. Also submit plots showing shading contours of the total displacement increments at the end of these two safety analyses. Explain the significance of what is shown in these plots of total displacement increments....
