Abstract

Slopes in soils and rocks are natural or man-made structures. Landslide and slope failure are responsible for millions of dollars of damage to public and private property every year. The great variety of slope movements reflects the diversity of conditions that cause the slope to become unstable and the processes that trigger the movement. The stability of a slope can be threatened by erosion due to surface water runoff, or more severe erosive forces associated with water. In this paper the geotechnical schemes which were done for constructing light structure (aviculture) in Noabad (Mazandaran-Iran) by regarding to the movement of site in previous years are described. In the first part of this paper the authors present bases of slope stability and safety factor of instable slope in case study area before geotechnical scheme then the reason of instability in case study area is described. In second part the geotechnical schemes were done and safety factor after geotechnical schemes is calculated. The factor of safety is calculated before geotechnical scheme which shows instability risk in study area and after geotechnical scheme the factor of safety is calculated for same sections again. And finally the result is checked. In general the authors believed that the schemes can provide useful and successful procedure for stabilization similar cases.

Geotechnical Schemes for Constructing Light Structures on Instable Slopes

Arlington, Virginia

Slopes in soils and rocks are natural or man-made structures. Landslide and slope failure are responsible for millions of dollars of damage to public and private property every year. The great variety of slope movements reflects the diversity of conditions that cause the slope to become unstable and the processes that trigger the movement. The stability of a slope can be threatened by erosion due to surface water runoff, or more severe erosive forces associated with water. In this paper the geotechnical schemes which were done for constructing light structure (aviculture) in Noabad (Mazandaran-Iran) by regarding to the movement of site in previous years are described. In the first part of this paper the authors present bases of slope stability and safety factor of instable slope in case study area before geotechnical scheme then the reason of instability in case study area is described. In second part the geotechnical schemes were done and safety factor after geotechnical schemes is calculated. The factor of safety is calculated before geotechnical scheme which shows instability risk in study area and after geotechnical scheme the factor of safety is calculated for same sections again. And finally the result is checked. In general the authors believed that the schemes can provide useful and successful procedure for stabilization similar cases.
