Soil and Rock Slope Stability

1.4 CEUs

Landslides cause millions of dollars in property damage every year, and the trend is worsening due to aging slopes constructed for U.S. transportation systems in the 1950s and 1960s, as well as the increasing need to develop land on steeper slopes. Landslide mitigation requires an understanding of geology, geotechnical evaluation, computerized analytical methods, and constructible engineering solutions. This seminar focuses on collecting and evaluating geotechnical data, soil and rock slope stability analysis, and stabilization methods.
