PhD research

Project outline:

Researching low-cost road slope stabilisation techniques that can be implemented in low-income countries. The optimal slope profile for stability is being investigated by numerical and experimental testing. It is hypothesised that re-profiling to an optimal non-linear geometry could be implemented as a low-cost slope stabilisation method.

The cost-effectiveness of road slope stabilisation methods currently implemented in low-income countries is to be assessed.
