Abstract : This report is a documentation of the computer program (CSLIDE) which was developed to assess the sliding stability of concrete structures using the limit equilibrium method described in ETL 1110-2-256, Sliding Stability for Concrete Structures. CSLIDE can compute the factor of safety against sliding considering the effects of numerous and varied conditions. The report is organized to present an overview of the sliding analysis and the capabilities of the program, to discuss the development of the equations used in the sliding analysis, the analysis procedures and their implementation into the program to discuss the program input and output, and to present a user's guide. The appendixes include example problems which demonstrate the capabilities of CSLIDE, hand solutions which verify the program results, routine descriptions, a flow chart of the program, and a description of the symbols used in the report.
