The use of geotextile for slope strengthening was proven based on the investigation and report by Kuwano, Miyata, and Koseki (2014). Therefore, this research examines the impact of geotextile application on slope stability in newly-elevated area in Yuriage, Natori City, Japan. This project discussed the analysis of geotextile-reinforced slope by...

The introduction of the new 'Waterwet' led to the retesting of a lot of primary flood defences within the Netherlands, sequentially certifying a lot of levees as unsafe regarding inner slope stability. To test or design a levee an adequate amount of soil investigation is required to indicate the presence of different soil types, stratification...

One of the main challenges in dike design in the Netherlands is to guarantee a sufficient safety level against the development of macro-instabilities in a dike. A case study was performed on a dike section at Herrewijnen-Opijnen, which is part of the Heesseltse Uiterwaarden in the Dutch province of Gelderland. The dike located at this site no...

Loose, sandy slopes situated or deposited under water may be susceptible to liquefaction-induced failure. In contrast to 'regular' localised slope failures, flow slides are diffuse, large-scale and potentially disastrous. Earthquake-induced ground vibrations currently dominate the liquefaction engineering scene. In reality, however, many...

Soil properties used to determine the stability of soil structures are variable in nature. Uncertainty in soil can be attributed to its inherent variability, as well as sources of error encountered while estimating the magnitude of its properties. The modelling of these uncertainties will produce more meaningful solutions when evaluating...

A new technique is developed in this thesis, which applies boundary conditions to moving boundaries in the Material Point Method (MPM). While MPM has been proven to be useful in slope stability, foundation and seabed ploughing modelling, the application of boundary conditions is still a challenge,
because the location of the boundary is...

The assessment of rock mechanical data is a fundamental step in the process of evaluating the profitability of an open pit mine. The steepness of bench, interramp and resulting overall slope angles have a direct effect on the stripping ratio, therefore on the profitability of the mining operation. With the recently challenging metal prices in...

In this work, an investigation into generic slope stability is carried out. The investigation takes into account slope parameters of height (H) and slope gradient (?) as well as material parameters of shear strength (vc) and spatial correlation length (?). A Monte Carlo analysis of many slopes with randomly generated shear strength parameters is...

Unexpected failure of subaqueous excavated slopes in the form of flow slides is considered in this graduate study. Excavated slopes are not the same as slopes constructed by means of hydraulic fill. Several recent flow slide failures in sand borrow pits, together with qualms in engineering practice about not knowing exactly what fundamental...
