Case 7

Potential failure of the slope of an embankment (Plaxis 3D simulation). The already existing embankment (blue layer on the right), had to be further loaded with new waste material (pink layer). From lab tests, the new waste was found to be weaker and capable of generating excess pore water pressure. The failure mode predicted is a toe rotational failure mode of the new waste.
