BEM Approved 7 CPD Hours (IEM/13/PP/008/W) Normal Price RM 550.00
(If 2 or more RM 450.00 per person Only)
Introduction
Introduction, overview & enlightening statistics for slopes
Common destabilizing causes & factors for fill & cut slopes with examples
Common defective design & defective construction for cut & fill slopes
Case histories of cut & fill slope failures in various site conditions plus remediation proposals with necessary step-by-step design verification/ calculations & design validation to show compliance with the requirements stipulated by Codes of practice (Local authorities/JKR, EC 7, relevant BS, etc).
Useful reference materials & notes (>100 pages) and slides (>250 nos) will be given and illustrated & elaborated.
