Hi, has anybody used gabions for slope protection? We are planning to use gabions for an open detention basin, and just wondering if there is any guidelines for design of slope protection using gabions. The slope is clay and right now my concern is to keep the slope flatter than the drained friction angle of the clay that is about 25 degrees (so we are planning a 1:2 slope), then use gabions on the face of the slope for slope protection. The gabions can be sloped or stepped. The height of the slope is about 5 meters which is quite high. Thanks for your help!!
