WHAT ARE THEY?
Strata recognizes that maximizing land use is the most critical need and has a major cost impact on any site development. Challenges in resolving grade change on the site are increasingly necessary as land cost increases and the difficulty to develop property becomes commonplace. To address these challenges, we provide the technical basis and economic solution for severe slope challenges, problematic soil conditions and land development needs.
StrataSlope™ systems use StrataGrid™ geogrids as reinforcing elements, combined with varied facing options to suit site requirement. The facing can be vegetated to provide a green aesthetic look or can be filled with stone for more robust appearances. Steep slopes are classified as structures with a face that is less than 70 degrees from the horizontal.
Any structure greater than 70 degrees should consider our retaining walls solutions.
What is commonly referred to as 1H:1V or flatter slopes, are slopes where proportion of the height of the rise is less than or equal to the length of the slope.
These slopes are classified as slopes where the proportion of the height of the rise is higher than the length of the slope.
Embankments represent a special class of slopes or walls where soil reinforcement is used to stabilize and construct a fill structure having a smaller footprint than what could be constructed with the soil alone. Embankment stabilization is common when constructing roadways or other structures over soft, weak foundation materials.
There are several factors that can help determine the best facing option for your project. A major advantage of Strata’s Geosynthetic Reinforced Soil (GRS) system is that they offer highly geotechnical designed structures which have technical and commercial advantages over traditional techniques. Our systems are designed according to international standards and offer a long-term design life of 120 years and quality-controlled system installation.
Slope stability design is commonly evaluated by calculating the driving and resisting forces to determine the factor of safety against rotation or movement.
This is commonly utilised to define three failure regimes:
Regardless of the failure regime, the designer must analyze numerous failure surfaces and isolate that surface which generates the least factor of safety for stability.
Computer software allows the designer to rapidly analyze thousands of failure surfaces and optimize reinforcement requirements to provide adequate factors of safety at the best economics. For each failure surface passing through a layer of reinforcement, the analysis considers the tensile strength of the reinforcement to investigate tensile rupture or failure, and geogrid pullout resistance.
Strata makes tools available to designers that allow easy selection of primary and secondary reinforcements. StrataSlope™ Software is a limit-equilibrium design package that automates primary geogrid reinforcement design utilizing circular or log-spiral failure surfaces with the Bishop’s Method of Slices. Additional tools are available that address surficial stability using parallel failure surface of infinite length (i.e. sliding wedge approach).
As the location was set on the side of a steep slope it was necessary to build a working platform on the edge of the mountain.
