Analytical solutions to most of the geotechnical problems are not available unless the geometry under consideration is highly simplified. For practical purposes, numerical method is indispensable. In this chapter, the numerical methods for some of the stability methods as discussed in previous chapters are elaborated.

Keywords: Discretization, Limit analysis, Limit equilibrium, Optimisation, Work done.
