moment to the disturbing moment, each moment considered about the centre of rotation. The methods of assessing stability using this moment equilibrium approach are described in the following sections. Alternatively, if stability assessment is to be performed in accordance with Eurocode 7, the strength parameters of the soil are first divided by partial factors, and stability is then confirmed if F is equal to, or greater than, 1.0.
