The Study on the Relationship of Remediation Technologies and Rock Slope Failure Mechanisms through Physical and Numerical Modelings

Project Details


The deformation features of rock slopes are highly dependent on the scale of the slopes. As the slope scale is larger, the deformation zone and volume of debris increase accordingly. To achieve the maximum benefit from rock slope remediation technologies, we attempt to investigate the adaptability of various rock slope remediation technologies with the consideration of various deformation features of rock slopes. The rock slopes being investigated with different remediation technologies include dip slopes, anti-dip slopes and oblique slopes. This study also collects various rock slope remediation technologies, including active and passive protection approaches. To consider the scale of rock slopes with different remediation technologies, we have also employed geotechnical centrifuge tests and numerical analyses to explore the remediation performance under different scenarios. The target is to give insights into choosing proper remediation technologies when dealing with various types of rock slope under multiple situations.
