Natural slopes and landslides – condition, assessment and mitigation (C810D)
Natural slopes are a dynamic feature of the landscape that evolve over time due to the processes acting upon them and because their properties may change over relatively short timescales (eg tens of years). Understanding the condition of natural slopes and the main processes that change the condition and lead to deterioration are essential to mitigating the hazards of slope movement, which may ultimately affect infrastructure located next to them.
The intention of this guide is to provide the asset owner, consultant and contractor with information on the condition, assessment and mitigation measures, which are applied to natural slopes. It is based on a detailed review of literature as well as consultation with experts and practitioners within the field. It draws heavily from numerous publications on landslides and advancements in research and industry. The authors have attempted to summarise the most relevant information with the aim of providing a guide for routine use that can be used to manage the risks. The information is supported by case studies demonstrating good practice. It has been prepared as a companion to CIRIA C591 and C592.
