Stability according to abutment/pile construction and additional embankment is checked by using Limit Equilibrium Method (LEM). Installing pile considering shear resistance to arc failure to compare and examine the stability before and after pile installing. LEM assumes the ground as a unit soil mass within which equilibrium of forces and moments at a specific failure surface is considered. LEM is widely used for stability analysis of cohesive slopes.
