May Meeting Notice Minneapolis
Date: Wednesday, May 9, 2018
Topic: Emergency Stabilization of Fountain Slide

The case study shows the application of micropiles and anchors to improve the stability of a railway embankment sitting on an active landslide. The remote location and difficult ground conditions have guided the design toward an unusual solution ruling out more conventional approaches. The method of analysis adopted played a significant role in optimizing the geometry layout and evaluating the performance. The presentation will be mostly focused on the technology adopted with a brief desription of the numerical analyses.
