This page is an index to various slope stability worksheets and programs (a relect from my old Anatomy of Landslides course)

Program History

Part of my of landslide course involved writing code for the various slope stability methods. For many students at the time, the most accessible 'platform' was Microsoft Excel, so most everything was written directly as worksheet functions, which works well for methods of slices. The Janbu method was implemented as a visual BASIC macro in Excel. That code is presented below. I also put in a crude C++ version (a quick translation of an earlier
