How tension crack causes slope failure?

Thension crack is generated by the difference in shear movement along the failure surface or slip plane. It formed in the upper slope face before the major failure surface appeared. So, the total shear resistance and thus the safety factor will reduce after this tension crack developement. However, this tension crack will stop developing when it reaches a critical depth. And, a new tension crack will develope behind that previous crack.
