In the Analysis Method table, which Method of Analysis should I use?

In general, the Swedish Method can be used on circular slips, gives a more conservative FoS and is not suitable for submerged slopes or those with horizontal loads. Bishop's Method is the most widely used and is suitable for all circular slips. Janbu's Method is most widely used for non-circular slips. An explanation of the theory behind the Methods of Analysis used in Slope can be found in Section 2 of the Slope Manual.
