The soil mass movement on failed slope had substantially deformed a sheet pile wall positioned at 6m froqn the new laboratory of Faculty of Mechanical Engineering (FKM Lab), Universiti Teknologi Malaysia, Skudai, Johor. To faciliate investigating the causes of the wall deformation, I computer modeling of slope stability is applied to simulate slope conditions before and after constnrction of the study area. The results of simulation analysis establish the fact that global soil mass movement started from the elevation of the newly filled water tank to downhill direction towards ttre installed sheet pile. Consequently, the mass movement generates a combination of mobilized shear force and lateral pressure larger than strength capacity of the sheet pile. In additior\ the finite element analysis shows that the sheet pile might successfully interceptthe slipplane of failure slopebut the wall moves significantly forward because of inadequate passive resistance and required minimum penetration depth in order to achieve stability
