The failure of unstable steep saturated earth slopes in the UK is a major factor in the closure of our national infrastructure such as roads, rail and waterways. Climate change has and will continue to produce longer periods of dry and wet weather, which will result in higher than normal water table level, so making the ground heavier and weaker, resulting in more ground failure and landslides.
Dr Thomas will present the reasons why saturated slopes fail, including a number of case studies that further display the mechanisms of failure. He will then deliver a number of case studies for the purpose of demonstrating state-of-the-art techniques which can be used for stabilizing weak saturated ground.
