Geotechnical infrastructure asset management focusing on slope embankment stability

Geo-management, Construction Engineering and management, Division of Engineering, Department of Urban Management, Graduate School of Engineering
Place of stay: Asian Institute of Technology, Thailand
Term: February 13 - February 24, 2012
This study focuses on stability of embankment slope or back slope along the highway in the mountain areas. Those risk slopes were already stabilized in order to increase their stability by several ground improvement technics, for example, soil nail, shortcrete and ground anchor during late 20th century. This studied base on simulate the deterioration rate of ground anchor by considering statistic approach, for example, Weibull distribution and Markov chain for the purpose that to find the optimum maintenance strategy for each type of geological condition such as Rhyorite, Granite, Gabbro and Sedimentary rock. In addition, these studied results were comparing with the observation data from filed test by lift-off test as well as visual inspection of ground anchor head by expert person. Finally, stability of slope also depending on ground water condition from rainfall that high in monsoon season and low in drought season. Therefore, this study also conducted numerical analysis and simulation the stability for long term.
