Abstract: As part of the effort to explain, teach, and guide the Corps of Engineers in the proper use of the slope-stability analysis program, UTEXAS3, a series of 13 example problems were developed. These problems illustrate the various program options, analysis procedures, and have been patterned after existing projects. As much as possible, validated parameters were used; however, some variables were chosen for illustrative purposes. The results from limited parameter studies and use of the four analysis procedures available in UTEXAS3 show the sensitivity of various options and procedures on the analysis results. The four analysis procedures available in the program are Spencer's, Simplified Bishop, Corps of Engineers, Modified Swedish, and Lowe and Karafiathr’s
