Abstract

This paper describes geotechnical design concepts used in developing 45-degree and 56-degree embankment slopes to meet strict stability criteria. Typical design sections are presented along with example stability computations to illustrate factors of safety developed under static and rapid drawdown conditions. This paper also discusses pertinent, site specific aspects of construction considered germane to successful, long term performance of oversteepened slopes at this site.

Oversteepened Slopes Reinforced with Tensar Geogrid

This paper describes geotechnical design concepts used in developing 45-degree and 56-degree embankment slopes to meet strict stability criteria. Typical design sections are presented along with example stability computations to illustrate factors of safety developed under static and rapid drawdown conditions. This paper also discusses pertinent, site specific aspects of construction considered germane to successful, long term performance of oversteepened slopes at this site.
