Case 2

Potential composite sliding failure in a temporary ramp, built on the capping system of a landfill. The failure mechanism is activated by the presence of the heavy traffic load. The traffic load was modelled as a dead uniformly distributed load of 800 kPa. The factor of safety for that failure mechanism was equal to 1.2, fully complying with the requirement for temporary road constructions.
