Proceedings of the Conference on Stability and Performance of Slopes and Embankments held in Berkeley, California, August 22026, 1966. Sponsored by the Soil Mechanics and Foundations Division of the American Society of Civil Engineers. Stability and Performance of Slopes and Embankments contains many papers covering a broad range of relevant issues in soil mechanics and foundations engineering. Topics include stability analysis of embankments, Waco Dam slide, stability of sloping core earth dams, slope stability during earthquakes, embankment performance, stability of natural slopes, and buttress design earthquake-induced slides. These proceedings will be of interest to both practitioners and researchers working with slope and embankment engineering.

Subject Headings: Slope stability | Soil stabilization | Foundations | Earthfill dams | Sliding effects | Landslides | Earthquakes | Seismic design
