The method developed for this study, established on the premises of the limit equilibrium flat analysis for a spatial solution, is a modification of the STAB-3D method, previously described by the author. It combines the analyses methods of 2D slices of flat cross–sections with the spatial analyses methodology rooted in a specific breakdown of a landslide sliding body into 3D elements assuming some simplifying solution. However, this method is solely applicable in case of a landslide failure with a stipulated slip surface and with a consistent decline of a determined slide direction. Such a method was developed in the article published earlier, which provided then its basic assumptions and the equilibrium formulations. The following publication thereof, presents overall suppositions for this method as well as its modification involving the resultant forces brought to the equilibrium with the generalized slide direction. Apart from that, a comparative analysis was carried out on the impact of this modification applicability of the obtained results with regard to the STAB-3D method. The algorithm was also presented concerning the modified method with its results being compared to a couple of selected methods LEM (limit equilibrium method). The undertaken analysis reveals that the modified MSTAB-3D method determines stability indicators that are very similar to its earlier version. Moreover, the results occur to be also approximating the values obtained in the course of other methods with regard to the flat cross-section analysis.
