Rock slope stability problems in Gold Coast area, Australia
MetadataShow full item record
The Tamborine Mountain area of the Gold Coast, Australia often faces rock slope failures during rainy seasons. To have a better understanding of the factors that may affect the slope stability, several rock slope sites examined in detail to assess the effect of discontinuities formed in the rock masses, and degree of weathering of the rocks on the overall stability of slopes. Different methods of slope stability analysis such as kinematic approach and slope mass rating, were applied to investigate the potential failure mode and predict the behavior of rock slopes in the future. This paper will present results of this work and make comparisons between different methods of rock slope stability analysis.
