Slopes and Retaining Systems: Design, Evaluation, and Rehabilitation

According to the National Landslide Hazards Program (NLHP) administered by the USGS, landslides constitute a major geologic hazard because they are widespread and can be quite severe; they occur in all 50 states and U.S. territories and cause an average of $1 to 2 billion in damages each year. GeoStructures is experienced in the design, evaluation and rehabilitation of a full range of earth/rock slopes and retaining systems for transportation facilities, commercial sites, and residential developments. In addition to competency in traditional limit-equilibrium analysis, our strength in soil-structure interaction modeling and use of FEM enables us to gain a deeper understanding of complicated slopes and earth retaining systems.
In the area of retaining systems, our engineers were among the first in Pennsylvania (late 1980s) to design geogrid-reinforced retaining walls, structures commonly referred to today as mechanically stabilized earth (MSE) walls or segmental retaining walls (SRW). A summary of our capabilities in the design of slope and retaining systems follows.
