ABSTRACT: The present paper summarizes the work done on developing and validating the use of a hybrid Finite – Discrete Element (FEMDEM) code for modelling slope instability processes. The main advantages of the FEMDEM method are the ability (i) to analyze the slope failure without assuming any mode or mechanism a priori, and (ii) to explicitly model the postpeak failure and the dynamic processes associated with the material runout. Several examples are presented to demonstrate the validity of the proposed numerical approach.
