This report describes the theory of a two-dimensional slope-stability analysis and covers the mechanics of limit-equilibrium procedures that utilize the wedge and slices methods. The mechanics of the four different procedures contained in the computer program UTEXAS2 University of Texas Analysis of Slopes - version 2 are discussed as well as sources of potential errors. The limit-equilibrium equations and the calculation procedures used in the program are described in an appendix. Keywords Soil mechanics, Army corps of engineers, Algorithms, Equations.
