Horizontal deep drains to stabilize clay slopes. by T.C. Kenney and K.C. Lau Download PDF EPUB FB2

Five horizontal drains were installed in a natural clay slope and the piezometric heads in the slope were monitored with piezometers. Decreases of piezometric head in the vicinity of the drains were measured and indicated that horizontal drains can be used to improve the stability of clay on the theory of consolidation, estimates were made of the changes of piezometric Cited by: During their research into the stabilization of clay slopes using horizontal drains, Lau and Kenney () developed a program to convert 3-D output from the groundwater program ' 'Trust''.

Horizontal drains were installed in a natural clay slope and changes of piezometric level were monitored by means of piezometers. These measurements showed that piezometric levels decreased in the vicinity of the drains, demonstrating that horizontal drains in clay slopes would increase the stability of the slopes.

One of the most effective options to stabilize landslides is to reduce the amount of water they contain by installing horizontal drains. A new type of horizontal drain material, geosynthetic wick drains, and a new installation method, driving drains rather than drilling them, were by: 8.

Decreases of piezometric head in the vicinity of the drains were measured and indicated that horizontal drains can be used to improve the stability of clay on the theory of.

Installation of horizontal drains in slope is one of the common methods used by engineers to lower the amount of excess water in slopes. Horizontal drains could be defined as holes drilled into a slope and cased with perforated metal or slotted plastic linearly to drain out groundwater [1, 2].Author: Yong Weng Long, Siti Noor Linda Taib, Onni Suhaiza Selaman.

The slope surface of the NTU-CSE site measured approximately 10 m wide by 24 m long rising at (H:V) to a height of about 12 m. Twelve horizontal drains made from 6-m long and mm diameter perforated PVC pipes were wrapped in a geofilter and installed in four rows in the study area (Fig.

2a and b).Cited by: Decreases of piezometric head in the vicinity of the drains were measured and indicated that horizontal drains can be used to improve the stability of clay on the theory of consolidation, estimates were made of the changes of piezometric head within the test slope due to the installation of drains.

The main role of the drains consists of preventing an increase in pore water pressure (associated with a groundwater level rising) to values that are critical for the slope stability. Many types of drainage systems are used to this purpose, such as drainage galleries, horizontal or vertical drains and drainage by: The horizontal drain spreadsheet may be used to: (1) predict a conservative piezometric profile in a drained slope for use in slope stability analyses, (2) predict piezometric heads in any single.

Selected answer a that the sides of a canyon are more when headward erosion causes one stream to intersect another Question 15 0 out of 1 points Along a uniform and steep slope of relatively weak substrate, a _____ drainage network is expected.

They are adopted in fine-grained soils and in fissured rocks. The schematic layout of horizontal drains, represented in typical longitudinal and cross sections, are shown in Figs.

The channel slope has adjusted, given the discharge and channel conditions, so that stream velocity is just enough to transport the sediment load.
