Webinar: Slope Stability, Ditches, Embankments & Detention Ponds

May 26 @ 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM CDT


This is part one of a four-part series on geotechnical and environmental considerations for various civil engineering projects. Part One will be an in-depth seminar on geotechnical considerations for slope-stability and erosion protection for ditches, embankments and detention ponds. The presentation will discuss the geotechnical requirements as they relate to projects for channels and detention ponds.

Topics of discussion include slope stability and erosion protection, structures on slopes, global stability, slope repair, retaining walls, drop/weir structures, soil nailing, channel failure, and more.

Projects discussed include Buffalo Bayou, Windermere Outfall, Outfall Failure at Tidwell Street, Raymond Ville Concrete Channel Failure and more.
