Description

Slope failures along a hilly road are the major nuisance for the commuters and highway/railway planners at best and risks to human life at worst. Further, a previously stable slope may be unpredictably affected by preparatory factors or climatic events, making the slope conditionally unstable. Slopes can be stabilized, however, with cover soil to impede movement and fill in an area. 

Mass movements can be caused by increases in shear stress, such as through loading, lateral pressure or transient forces. Alternately, shear strength may be decreased by weathering, changes in pore pressure and organic material.

To test, prevent or fix a potential or future slope failure, we’re standing by to lend out expertise.
