DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION OF COMPACTED SHALE EMBANKMENTS. VOLUME 2. EVALUATION AND REMEDIAL TREATMENT OF SHALE EMBANKMENTS
The purpose of the three-phase study is to develop design and construction methodologies that will enable shales which have caused settlements and slope failure in highway embankments to be identified and used successfully in future construction. The purpose of Phase II was to develop (a) techniques for evaluating the stability of existing embankments and (b) remedial treatments for distressed embankments. Information obtained from State and Federal agencies and the literature was reviewed. Types and probable causes of distress, evaluation techniques, and remedial treatment measures are discussed.
