Slope Stability

Slope stability is the capacity of an inclined earth surface (soil and/or rock) to resist failure by sliding or collapsing. Natural and manmade slopes can pose geologic hazards (e.g. landslides) to the public and infrastructure if they are not evaluated and designed correctly.

Our engineers are trained to obtain the necessary geological and loading information, investigate potential failure mechanisms, and design optimal slopes with regard to safety and economics. We have worked with clients to evaluate and design embankments, excavated slopes, rock cuts, earth levees and dams, and natural slopes.
