This model examines the application of the Monte Carlo analysis to a block failure of a generic heap leach scenario with pseudo-static loading and a horizontal seismic load coefficient of 0.09.
A probability analysis is used using Monte Carlo method and a floating critical slip surface location.
The analysis method used for this study is:
M-P (Interslice Force Function - Half-sine).
The search method for the critical slip surface is "Block". The block search method allows specification of a slip involving a "block" of soil with two hinge points. Trial slip surfaces are generated by placing a grid of trial vertices at each hinge point. The critical slip surface is considered to be non-circular.
