<p>Slope is an exposed ground surface that stands at an angle with the horizontal. Slopes are required in the construction of highway and railway embankments, earth dams, levees, canals etc., and are generally less expensive. Failure of natural slopes and ...

<p>Observations of the performance of many different types of retaining structures in recent earthquakes show that failures of retaining structures, including braced excavation supports and basement walls, are rare even if the structures were not designed ...
Explicit finite difference code was used to calculate the stability factors of shallow tunnels without internal support in limit state. The proposed method was formulated within the nonassociative plasticity. For the shallow tunnels in soft clay, without considering ...

The use of geotextiles as reinforcement in soil-retaining walls may offer benefits over the use of other types of reinforcement, such as metallic strips or geogrids. These include ease of construction, expediency, and significant cost reduction. However, the ...

Experimental studies on poorly draining soil-reinforcement interactions were reviewed in a companion paper by Zornberg and Mitchell in 1994, leading to the conclusion that permeable geosynthetic inclusions are useful for reinforcing marginal backfills. This ...

The use and performance of reinforced soil structures constructed with poorly draining and or cohesive backfills is evaluated. This evaluation shows that proper design and construction can result in stable durable and economical earth structures.
