Topographic Transformation
The ongoing renovation of Governors Island, in New York City’s harbor, included the construction of four artificial hills that provide spectacular views of the surrounding natural and man-made scenery....

Open Pit Geotechnics: Designing Slopes for a Very Deep Hole
For most hard rock surface mining operations, the development of an open pit is required to extract the ore resource. In designing an open pit, the challenge is to develop the most cost-effective pit slopes...

Stabilizing Variable and Sloping Ground: Achieving Innovation Through Adaptation
We all know the high price of land development these days, so it's more important than ever for owners and their designers to maximize available land area. Occasionally, this demand is constrained by topography...

Long-Term Performance Monitoring of a Hillside Retaining Wall
To accommodate expansion of the West Point Treatment Plant in Seattle, WA, a 3,000-ft-long soldier pile, tieback-anchored retaining wall was constructed from May 1991 to May 1992. An oblique...

Is There a Movement Toward Three-dimensional Slope Stability Analyses?
Over the past few years, interest in performing three-dimensional (3-D) slope stability analyses has surged. An increasing number of research papers on this topic are being published at...

Estimation of Curve Numbers for Concrete and Asphalt
All impervious surfaces are assigned a Curve Number (CN) of 98. However, no field or experimental evidence exists (to our knowledge) that shows why the impervious CN was assigned a value...

Marginal Permafrost a Foundation Material in Transition
At the edges of the world's cold regions lie areas of marginal permafrost. It is a changing landscape that seems to be growing in extent, yet it retains chameleon-like qualities...

Evaluation of the Green Terramesh Reinforced Slope System
Final Report

Sensitivity of Raster-Based Model of Hillslope Hydrology and Sediment Transport to DEM Resolution

Making the Grade
Adding two lanes to a stretch of highway in western Colorado required excavation on slopes and involved micropiles, mechanically stabilized earth walls, ground anchors, and soil nails....

Sustainable Steep Vegetated Slopes Through Soil Bioengineering

Characteristics and Implications of Relict Carbonate Paleoshorelines
Throughout the Florida-Bahamas region, the accumulation of coastal carbonate deposits, excepting the present highstand, appears to be episodic. Back through time these deposits provide...
