Reinforced Earth Steep Slope

by Yassine Bennani & Atanu Adhikari (Reinforced Earth)


2 November 2023


10:30 am



This talk will be presenting the design principals for reinforced steep slopes from the local structural verification to the limit equilibrium approach. Reinforced Earth technologies will be described and several project references on diverse applications will be introduced. A road widening application using reinforced earth steep slope technology will be detailed and the tallest reinforced steep slope ever built in the world will be presented. From the landslide event to the full completion of the construction of the 102m tall structure, all key design considerations as well as the construction methodology will be revealed to the audience.

About the Speaker:
