Slopes & Embankments

At Grid Engineers we specialize in all aspects of geotechnical design of earthworks. Our design combines standardize design methodologies (empirical and semi-analytical) with state-of the art simulations to deliver cost efficient solutions for a broad range of geotechnical situations including progressive failure of dams and embankments, dynamic response of soils, and thermal behaviour.

Design is powered by our in-house algorithms implemented to simulate complicated soil mechanisms such as:

  • Strain-softening effects in seismically exciting slopes
  • Rainfall induced slope failures and landslides
  • Soil creeping due to seasonal variations of ground water level
  • Thaw settlement estimations of permafrost embankments
