Abstract

This paper deals with the case study of dump slopes stability analysis of an opencast mine near Nagpur,
Maharashtra, India. The study considers cohesion, angle of internal friction of soil samples and pore water pressure
distribution in mine slopes. Factor of safety has been calculated by numerical modeling software OASYS using
different slope angles. The outcome of study will be helpful in managing dump height.
