Geosynthetics in Slopes over Stable Foundations

Completion:
April 6, 2021

Layers of geosynthetic reinforcement are used to stabilize slopes against potential deep-seated failure using horizontal layers of primary reinforcement. The reinforced slope may be part of slope reinstatement and (or) to strengthen the sides of earth fill embankments. The reinforcement layers allow slope faces to be constructed at steeper angles than the unreinforced slope.
