Seismic stability analysis of slopes stabilized with EPS-block geofoam


The use of lightweight fill, such as EPS-block geofoam, is a slope stabilization procedure that can be used to reduce the weight of the sliding mass and, thereby, reduce the driving forces of the sliding mass. This paper proposes the use of the horizontal slice method (HSM) for seismic stability analysis of slopes stabilized or repaired with EPS-block geofoam. © 2013 American Society of Civil Engineers.
