Abstract
In a preliminary laboratory test, a homogeneous sand slope loaded on top was destabilized by increasing the base slope, the motion of the system was recorded by means of high speed camera. An image processing software was used to analyze the laboratory data. The test was simulated using a MPM code and others numerical tools. Numerical results and laboratory measurements were compared. Failure loads in simulations were verified against the one applied in the laboratory. The onset of the failure a...
