International Geosynthetics Society UK
The International Geosynthetics Society is an engineering professional society focused on the field of geosynthetics.
Construction of this 67-metre-high reinforced soil slope (RSS) was completed in December 2006. After seven years in-service, a tension crack was observed at the top of the slope.
In March 2015 this RSS structure catastrophically collapsed. The structure collapsed in a compound failure mode; as the failure plane passed beneath, partially behind, and partially through the reinforced soil mass. The RSS collapse occurred after 8.3 years in-service as the shear strength along the shale-claystone foundation interface decreased and approached the fully softened strength.
This webinar will cover the forensic investigation performed, the causes of the failure and lessons learned.
This is a joint event with the International Geosynthetic Society (IGS) UK Chapter.
A five session course delivered by industry experts to develop in-depth knowledge of health, safety, and welbeing in civil engineering within the UK.
Join the ICE and ICSI for the seventh lecture in the 14th Brunel International Lecture Series, which will shine a spotlight on equitable, sustainable, and resilient infrastructure challenges in South Asia.
This is an opportunity for Technicians to gather online to discuss ways in which we can help ourselves, each other and the ICE to provide ongoing learning and experience in the wide world of civil engineering.
