Stability of embankments

To learn more about the stability of a soil body/embankments,  Deltares offers the following courses:

  • Calculating macro/slope stability: from determining the soil parameters to a safety factor (link course)
  • Calculating the stability of a soil body/embankments with D-Stability (D-GEO Suite) – beginners course (link course)
  • Calculating the stability of a soil body/embankments with D-Stability (D-GEO Suite) – advanced course (link course)

These courses are mostly based on the Dutch experience of embankment assessment.

Description is only available in Dutch (see links above), but English versions of these courses can be given when required.

Register per course, via the links above, and add the requests for an English version at “Opmerkingen/wensen”.
