Geotechnical Division.;]. A slope stability problem in Hong Kong Introduction In the early s a series of landslides occurred in Hong Kong as a result of exceptionally heavy rains. These slides caused some loss of life and a significant amount of property damage.

Consequently, an extensive review was carried out on the stability of soil and rock slopes in the Territory. Ken has published over papers on slope engineering, quantified risk assessment, earthquake, piling and deep excavations.

He has presented a number of keynote papers and state-of-the-art papers at various international conferences. C.K. Lau obtained his PhD from Cambridge University, studying geotechnical engineering under Prof.

Bolton. He is a past chairman of Geotechnical Division, Hong Kong Institution of Engineers, specializing in the design and construction of slope stabilization works in Hong Kong. A free set of notes is available based on select case histories, each carefully chosen to illustrate the concepts and practical approaches used.

From tunneling in South America to slope stability in Hong Kong, Practical Rock Engineering is an invaluable reference tool.

The book is available in its entirety, or by chapter, below. the Slope Engineering Branch of PWD has already started with ground mapping to compute hazard maps approach has been adopted in Hong Kong where landslide mitigation and risk reduction have been incorporated into two (2) components, first in planning control of new development, and subsequently in.

This inter-disciplinary book provides the latest advanced knowledge of plant effects on vegetated soil properties such as water retention capability, water permeability function, shear strength, slope hydrology, movements and failure mechanisms, and applies this knowledge to the solution of slope stability problems.

Finally, three soil slope examples, including a two-layered cohesive slope, a three-layered c-φ slope, and a single-layered sand slope, are examined to verify the capability and validity of the proposed approach. The results indicate that the proposed approach can provide a reasonable and accurate estimation of the system failure probability.

Slope failure as the result of heavy rainfall, is a major problem in Hong Kong. The results of a study on rainfall and subsequent slope failures occurring during 24.

Both failed and unfailed slopes were used in the calibration process. Through this exercise, the reliability assessed for a given slope in Hong Kong with similar soil material to those used in the calibration study can be calibrated to a realistic reliability measure.

Engineering and Design SLOPE STABILITY 1. Purpose. This engineer manual (EM) provides guidance for analyzing the static stability of slopes of earth and rock-fill dams, slopes of other types of embankments, excavated slopes, and natural slopes in soil and soft rock.

Methods for analysis of slope stability are described and are illustrated by. The underlying cause of loose fill slope failures in Hong Kong has been attributed to static liquefaction during heavy rainfall.

A series of centrifuge model tests and numerical analyses were conducted to illustrate that instability of a fill slope inclined at approximately the internal friction angle of the soil can be triggered by confined groundwater flow due to soil layering in the fill slope.

Q.2 (a) Explain four (4) potential causes that contribute to the slope stability problems in Hong Kong. (b) A slope with a given failure surface is shown in Fig. Q.2(a). The unit weight of the soil both above and below the water table is 20 kN/m' and the relevant shear strength parameters are c. Slope inclinometers are devices developed to monitor and measure the deformation of the subsurface.

They have been widely used since the s to evaluate the performance of natural slopes, embankments and retaining walls providing significant data about in-situ ground movements that could be an indicator of potential failures. The recurrence of slope failures in residual soils of Hong Kong is analysed for the period toand various factors contributing to the instability are described.

It is postulated that the prime cause of the failures is direct infiltration of rain water into the surficial zones of the slopes, producing a. The book highlights the importance of raising awareness to the challenges of landslide hazards due to climate impact. He is currently the Deputy Head of the Geotechnical Engineering Office of the Hong Kong Government and an Adjunct Professor at the University of Hong Kong.

Ken has published over papers on slope engineering. The situation was exacerbated by the lack of proper engineering standards in the design and construction of man-made slopes prior to the setting up of the Geotechnical Engineering Office (GEO, formerly known as the Geotechnical Control Office) in as a central body to regulate various aspects of slope safety in Hong Kong.

However, the slope angle of soil cover is varied in engineering practice and hence it is an essential design parameter. In this study, the influence of slope angle on water flow in the three‐layer soil cover was investigated via flume model tests subjected to heavy rainfall.

Hong Kong Slope Safety is a division within the CEDD that is responsible for Hong Kong's strategy on dealing with the safety of slopes, and making them look more natural. The government have committed to landscape every existing slope upgraded under the Landslip Preventive Measures (LPM) Programme and every newly formed Government slope.

Slope monitoring is routinely conducted, and observational information such as surface/underground displacements, groundwater levels, and rock bolt forces at multiple locations is collected. How to make use of the monitoring information to reveal failure mechanisms and assess the slope stability is a key issue in slope engineering.This book is an engineering guide for design of slopes and stabilisation works in rocks and residual soils.

The work also benefits enormously from the time spent in Hong Kong in and by the first editor on It can be used as textbook in courses on landslides and slope stabilisation. The purpose of this book is to present a.The two-day workshop will consist of focused sessions on SLOPE/W and SEEP/W.
