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

This live webinar 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 live webinar 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. This live webinar will provide 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.

Learning Objectives
• You will be able to identify challenges and practices of slope stabilization.
• You will be able to compile examples of sloughs, deep rotation or slide failure.
• You will be able to apply design and maintenance of stable slopes.
• You will be able to identify the health, safety and welfare aspects of slope stabilization.
