Abstract: An improved harmony search algorithm is proposed which is found to be more efficient than the original harmony search algorithm for slope stability analysis. The effectiveness of the proposed algorithm is examined by considering several published cases. The improved harmony search method is applied to slope stability problems with five types of procedure for generating trial slip surfaces. It is demonstrated that the improved harmony search algorithm is efficient and effective for the minimization of factors of safety for various difficult problems, and the method of generating the trial failure surfaces can be important in the minimization process.
