In this study, stability against deep sliding of gravity dam is analysed in order to provide guidance for ensuring stability against sliding of gravity dam during the construction and operation periods. Based on checking-point method (JC method), the study proposes an analysis model for stability against deep sliding of gravity dams. In addition, the rigid body limit equilibrium method is utilized to construct the limit state function of deep anti-sliding stability. With sliding plane anti-shear friction coefficient and anti-shear cohesion calculated as random variables, safety degree of stability against deep sliding is analysed. With JC method employed, the calculation program is compiled to calculate the stability against deep sliding of gravity dam and analyse the non-overflow section of gravity dam under normal storage level. According to calculation program, the reliability index β of stability against deep sliding of gravity dam is 4.36, and the failure risk Pf is approximately zero. Additionally, based on the traditional rigid body limit equilibrium method, the safety factor K is 3.23, which meets the requirements of the design specification. According to the above methods, stability against deep sliding of the dam section meets the requirement. In conclusion, JC method provides a calculation and analysis model for gravity dam’s stability against deep sliding, serving as references in the design of gravity dams based on reliability theory.
