Abstract: 
Large deformation analysis of slope failure is important for hazard and risk assessment of infrastructure. Recent studies have revealed that spatial variability of soil properties can significantly affect the probability of slope failure. However, due to limitations of traditional numerical tools, the influence of spatial variability on the post-failure behavior of slopes has not been clear. Therefore, in this study, we aimed to investigate the effects of the cross-correlation between cohesion and the friction angle on the probability of slope failure and post-failure behavior (e.g., run-out distance, influence distance, and influence zone) using a random material point method (RMPM). The study showed that mesh size, strength reduction shape factor parameter, and residual strength all play critical roles in the calculated post-failure behavior of a slope. Based on stochastic Monte Carlo simulation, the effects of cross-correlation between cohesion and the friction angle on the probability of slope failure, and its run-out distance, influence distance, influence zone, and sliding volume were studied. The study also showed MPM has great advantages compared with the finite element method (FEM) in handling large deformations.
