Surficial slope failures are generally induced by the collection of precipitation in the cracks formed during dry summers. In the present research, an earthen dam in North Texas subjected to past failures due to surficial slope failures was selected. Soil ...

Rainfall has been identified as one of the main causes for embankment failures in areas where high annual rainfall is experienced. The inclination of the embankment slope is important for its stability during rainfall. In this study, instrumented model embankments ...

Presently, due to ever-increasing demand of minerals for the country, it is very much required to have the opencast mines at a greater depth. Increasing depth also increased the severity of slope stability problems of the opencast mines. Unlike the previous ...

During the formal design phase, the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation (USBR), as the ultimate owner of the AACLP, required the project to provide 2H:1V side slopes. USBR's only concern in requiring the change was related to the stability of the side slopes during ...

Slopes in open pit mines must be considered as geotechnical structures. Therefore their design and implementation must be conducted with all consideration including technical, economical, environmental and safety issues. But these structures are above all ...

The goal of this paper is to show which areas are particularly prone to earthquake-induced slope failure. In this regard, the paper considers the short- and long-term effects of geological, tectonic, climatic and morphological conditions. Case histories related ...

The kinematic approach of limit analysis is explored in three-dimensional 3D stability analysis of slopes. A formal derivation is first shown indicating that, in a general case, the approach yields an upper bound to the critical height of the slope or an ...
