Is this slope possible?

Is this slope possible?

Is this slope possible?


Q1: What is the construction sequence for the batters?
Q2: Hydroseeding with jute matting where the slope overlay is thin. But this technology will not work near the toe of the slope due to thickness. Is the slope stable under its own weight?

RE: Is this slope possible?

Q1: Build up and extend by approx 1m and cut back to desired slope, if not too high for excavator.
Q2: Possibly, do you have a slope constructed of PEAT or ROCK? its a simple calculation that you should learn how to do.

RE: Is this slope possible?

EireChch Thanks for your response. No peat or rock. Engineered fill. Are you talking about the infinite slope calculation?

RE: Is this slope possible?

What type of engineered fill. What are the soil conditions beneath the embankment. Is it flat at the bottom of your 1:2 built slope?

RE: Is this slope possible?

geotechguy1 The fill material has not been decided, but is currently well-graded sand. Beneath the embankment is stiff clay, followed by dense sand and sandstone. The existing ground at the toe of the slope continues to slope down. It would require 4-5 m extra to extend the slope to flat ground.

Thanks for your response!
