Title: Rainfall-induced slope failures : controlling factors and mitigation with capillary barriers
Authors: Ong, Tiam Hwa.
Keywords: DRNTU::Engineering::Civil engineering::Geotechnical
Issue Date: 2003
Abstract: This research was conducted to investigate factors controlling slope instability and identify the primary factors affecting the instability of slopes due to rainfall loading. Apart from that, the feasibility of using capillary barrier to overcome the problems of rainfall-induced slope failure was also explored by examining factors that affect the performance of capillary barriers for slope stabilisation in tropical regions.
