Abstract: The horizontal displacements measured at the toe of eight embankments are analyzed as a function of the factor of safety. The embankments are built on layers of soft clay. Only the undrained stage is studied.When the factor of safety of the embankments is higher than about 1.4, the horizontal displacements on the ground surface, at the toe of the embankment seem to follow an elastic law which is highly dependent on the ratio of the thickness of the soft layer to the width of the embankment. When the factor of…
