Slope stability analysis was performed on the northern Ein Gev landslide using the same methodology as was used for the Fishing Dock Landslide. Because the northern Ein Gev landslide exhibited a multi-phase sliding history, the sandstone of the Ein Gev formation (the unit that failed) was mechanically tested in two different states to extract an Initial Peak Shear Strength and a Residual Strength that would exist after the earliest failure. Test results are listed below:
|Friction Angle||Factor of Safety
from Static Analysis
|Pristine Rock||Peak Shear Strength||376||43°||4.5||0.95 g|
|Deformed Rock||Residual Strength||0||38°||2.8||0.37 g|
|g||Peak Horizontal Ground Acceleration|
