Abstract: The stability of slopes subjected to foundations loads near the top of the slope has been investigated in the present study. The c-? soil slope with different width and embedment depth of foundation has been considered here. In the present study, the building load is considered as a surcharge load on the slopes. Strength reduction method has been adopted to investigate the variation of factor of safety (FOS) of slope against the different parameters of the imposed load and slope angle. The earthquake force has been considered as fixed body force within the soil mass. From this study, the FS decreases with the increase of building or foundation loads, and at a certain distance from the edge of the slope, the FOS remained constant. The improvement of FOS has been observed with the increase of embedment depth of footing for all surcharge loads. The rapid reduction of FOS has been noted when foundation load is increased on slopes in both static and seismic case. � 2021, Springer Nature Singapore Pte Ltd.
