Slope Stabilization: Best Practices and Challenges

Avoid slope stabilization failures by utilizing these well-established engineering techniques and best practices.

This topic will address the types of slope stabilization failures and techniques used to avoid failures by the application of best practices. There are well-established engineering principles for the design and maintenance of stable slopes. This topic summarizes practices to overcome challenges to enhance slope stability. Many engineers are faced with challenges to protect against the potential for slope failure. Indicators include sloughs, erosion and deep rotation/sliding failure. You will be provided with best practices such as the use of weight at the toe, milder slopes, drainage and other methods to avoid these types of failure. Different types of construction have been implemented in order to stabilize slopes in an effort to overcome slope failures. Such types of construction include sheet pile walls, piers, step walls, concrete gravity-retaining walls, geogrid walls, mechanically-stabilized earth walls, tie-back walls, crib walls and/or gabion walls.
