About The Event

Slope failure mechanisms vary in complexity from simple translational slides to complex multi-block/multi-slip mechanisms. Developments in remote sensing and slope analysis techniques have seen a rapid transition from air photograph interpretation and simple limit equilibrium analyses to increasingly sophisticated and readily available ground and airborne/satellite sensing methods and 2D/3D numerical models. A focus of this talk will be on improving our understanding of complex rock slope failure mechanism through remote sensing characterization and monitoring constrained against numerical models. Using case studies of natural and engineered slopes from North America, Europe and Africa the importance of structural geology, kinematics and slope damage will be demonstrated. With the continued advent of innovative technology the need to fully optimize available data is emphasized, along with the need to ensure that the limitations of these techniques are considered and that the key role of conventional engineering geological and engineering geomorphological investigations recognized.
