I think this an interesting paper on slope stability.

I was doing research on how to get dirt to pile at extreme angles and stumbled across this paper in designing slopes and cuts.

Thank you Sam for sharing that...

A very good synopsis of slope stabilization modalities. I did not see any reference to "angle of repose," which you should find interesting, and of merit to your research.
