Dear colleagues:

My name is Ignacio Pérez, a mining engineering student from Spain. I am trying to analyze the stability of a slab with rounded edges against a toppling failure. The slab can be considered rectangular-prism shaped (I provide a rectangular section in the enclosed picture) but the edges are rounded with a particular radius, r.

My question is, how could I analyse the stability of this block when resting on a plane inclined alpha degrees? Should I considered the moments of every "pieces" in which I have divided the block or just calculating moments from the selected origin?

Any kind of help is acknowledge...
