A probabilistic slope analysis methodology based on Monte Carlo simulation using Microsoft Excel and @Risk software is applied to investigate the failure of the Shek Kip Mei cut in Hong Kong. The study demonstrates the techniques used in quantifying uncertainties in shear strength of granitic...
Kananaskis Country is situated in the Front Ranges of the Canadian Rockies in southwestern Alberta. Sedimentary rock thrust northeastwards forms mountain ridges that trend northwest–southeast parallel to the major thrust faults. Older, Palaeozoic rocks—mainly limestone and dolomite—form the...
Abstract: Rock mass movements in sedimentary rocks across bedding in Kananaskis Country, Alberta, are controlled by discontinuity orientations and topography. When bedding planes dip at less than 50-degrees, small rock masses can slide along strike joints or fall and slope angles remain...
Abstract: The Lesueur landslide occurred on 3 September 1963 on the outside of a meander of the North Saskatchewan River in northeast Edmonton. The displaced volume was 0.76 Mm(3) of Pleistocene deposits and underlying Upper Cretaceous mudstones. The trigger of the landslide is believed to be...
