The present study discusses the impact of seismic load on shear band development in soil slope is using finite element modeling considering plain strain condition. Large inelastic deformations are frequently accompanied with the formation of intense bands of localized shearing which results large strain plastic response. Shear band formation is considered as significant factor to understand failures in soil slope. The strain analysis has been performed considering maximum shear strain to investigate the shear deformation behavior of the slope of soil deposit. To simulate the strain localization, softening behavior and development of shear band, a Modified Cam-Clay (MCC) material model was implemented. It is found that none of the slopes are stable under seismic action, but the instability of different slopes with inclination varies. The slope with an inclination of 1:2.25 is relatively stable. The slope with an inclination of 1:2 has local failure, but not destroyed as a whole. The slope with an inclination of 1:1.75 has a complete formation of shear band along the slip surface. The slope is destroyed as a whole. Hence, both tension and strain localization causes deformation in slope. Displacement and acceleration response was found maximum at the crest of slope.
