Civil & Construction Engineering

Sloping & Benching, Embankments And Baudwall

  REF: CE101  DATES: 16 - 20 Jul 2018  (One Week)  VENUE: Malaysia (Kuala Lumpur)-Grand Millenium Hotel


This short course provides guidance for analyzing the static stability of slopes of earth and rock-fill dams, slopes of other types of embankments, excavated slopes, and natural slopes in soil and soft rock. Methods for analysis of slope stability are described and are illustrated by examples and case studies. Criteria are presented for strength tests, analysis conditions, and factors of safety. The methods of stability analysis discussed in this course satisfy all conditions of equilibrium


  • To introduce the basic concept of  limit equilibrium in static and quasi-static slope stability analyses
  •  To explain common methods of slope stability analysis, computer software and design charts
  •  To discuss design considerations for embankments, excavations and other man-made slopes
  •  To analyze stability of natural slopes in soils and soft rocks
  •  To outline technologies for slope stabilization
  •  To practice slope stability analysis and design calculations via exercises and case studies

Who Should attend:

Geotechnical engineers, structural engineers, consulting engineers, design engineers, field engineers, technicians and technologists, and other individuals who need to build background on slope stability analyses and design. The course is also best suited for civil engineers, engineering geologists, soil scientists, city and public works officials, city planners, and other design professionals who deal with construction related slope stability and stabilization issues.
