Sustainable Mitigation of Slope Failure by Compacted Soil-Cement Fill

Compacted soil-cement has been used worldwide for subgrade stabilization. A case study is presented herein to show the beneficial of using this technique to restore a slope failure in a congested residential area. Such approach is not common, however, the experience described herein has shown that the compacted soil-cement toe berm together with soil nailing successfully meets all the site criteria. Based on field monitoring, the slope is stable and safe to date. It is a valuable and sustainable solution particularly for those sites that have a major concern in disposal of the sloughing silty debris.
