Earth embankments or slopes are commonly required for which of the following purpose?
An infinitely long slope is made up of a cφ soil having the properties: cohesion, C = 20 kPa, and dry unit weight, γ_{d} = 16 kN/m^{3}. The angle of inclination and critical height of the slope are 40° and 5 m, respectively. To maintain the limiting equilibrium, the angle of internal friction of the soil (in degrees) is ________
