Slope Stabilisation

A variety of events can lead to ground movements along slopes. These mass movements can be caused by an increase in shear stress, such as loading, lateral pressure and transient forces; or a decrease in shear stress caused by weathering or changes in pore water pressure. These events can cause slope failures.  In order to prevent slope failures occurring, or to repair failed slopes, slope stabilisation techniques including soil nailing, rock bolting, grouting, shotcreting, meshing and dewatering can be implemented.
