Abstract: Unsaturated cracked slopes are easily to be affected by rainfall in the soil. Actually, some of the rainfall becomes the surface runoff and the rest permeates the crack under the ground in water cycle system. The infiltration makes the groundwater level rise. It also increases the pore water pressure and slide stress of the soil and decreases the anti-shear strength of soil. That makes the slope fracture or deform. However, most of the slope stability analyses set the physical properties of the soil as constan…
