<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>This white paper is intended to be a "living document" that presents the "state of the practice" for determining fill strength parameters for earthfill embankment dams and the static analysis of embankment dams.</p>

The assessment of the stability of coal ribs needs to consider not only the impact of the cleating and jointing in the coal but also the possible onset of failure of the coal itself. The same planar, wedge and toppling failure modes seen in pitwall slopes ...

<p>This manual is intended to enable the reader to have the necessary special equipment made, and to perform and evaluate all three versions of the wedge shear test. A diskette containing the relevant computer programs and typical input data is to be found ...
<p>Investigation the probability of failure of a cohesive slope using simple and advanced probabilistic analysis tools. Influence of local averaging on the probability of failure is evaluated.</p>

The design for a major cable-stayed bridge to be constructed in seismically-active Charleston, South Carolina, included rock islands around the main span piers as protection from shipimpact. Considering the seismic potential, a primary concern was the potential ...

<p>This paper presents a review of drained versus undrained methods of static stability analysis of upstream tailings dams, and how these relate to dilatant versus contractant behavior. The authors support the view that for upstream dams constructed of contractant, ...
The paper describes a slope failure involving an unreinforced geosynthetic clay liner (GCL) in a municipal solid waste (MSW) landfill liner system. The precise mechanism for the shear movement of the interim slope is not known. However, the significant damage ...
