SLOPE STABILITY STUDIES
“Unfortunately, soils are made by nature and not by man, and the products of nature are always complex.”
Karl von Terzaghi, 1936
- What is a slope failure?
A slope failure is a phenomenon that a slope collapses abruptly due to weakened self-retain ability of the earth under the influence of a rainfall or an earthquake. Because of sudden collapse of slope, many people fail to escape from it if it occurs near a residential area, thus resulting in a higher rate of fatalities.
- What exactly we do?
Our services encompass the analysis of static and dynamic stability of slopes by the determination of the potential failure surface, determining the stability of the slope for short term and long term duration and analyze the essential steps required for prevention of slope failure.
- Where is slope stability design necessary?
o Earth and Rock-Fill Dams
o Embankments for Highway/Railway etc.,
o Excavated slopes
o Landfill slopes
