In order to examine the safety of stone-built historic properties, it is necessary to apply different methods to the properties according to their categories, respectively. However, there is no consensus for the criteria on which item should be examined. To make systematic preservation plans for the historic stone buildings, it must be requested to consider various factors such as weights, structural imperfections, and natural disasters and so on. In this paper, the Jinjeonsaji three-storied stone pagoda were numerically analyzed through the finite element method to measure its weight and slope. In addition, it was studied how slope variations of the stone pagoda affect to the deflections and stresses caused by its weight. Finally, criterions were proposed to examine the safety of the stone pagoda.
