Earthquake motion is one of the most significant influence factors on the slope stability. In this paper, an effective stress analysis with the elasto-plastic model was carried out to investigate the behavior of the slope stability subjected to the successive two strong earthquake motions, fore and main shock. The major influence of fore shock to the slope stability was considered as the existence of the residual excess pore water pressure. The paper presents the influence of the existence of the fore shock to slope stability using the numerical analyses. In conclusion, the excess pore pressure by the fore shock was not dissipated during the 7hrs of consolidation. By this residual excess pore water pressure, the factor of safety at the sliding face showed the minimum values, and the deformations of slope was large when compared with the case that considered the main shock only. Furthermore, the minimum of the factor of safety came out after the end of the earthquake motion.
