Sustainable Slope Stabilisation using Recycled Plastic Pins, Hardback Book

Sustainable Slope Stabilisation using Recycled Plastic Pins Hardback



Landslides and slope failure are common in the US and rest of the world.

The landslides cause significant damage to infrastructure and millions of dollars are required each year to fix the slope.

A sustainable and costeffective option to stabilise the slope can have significant benefits, as it will reduce the cost of maintenance and when using recycled pins, it may help the environment at the same time.

The recycled plastic pin is made from recycled plastic bottles and other plastic waste.

Several demonstration projects already proved the effectiveness of RPP as an alternative option to fix slope failure, with a maximum failure depth of 7-8 ft.

In this book, every detail of the slope stabilisation technique using recycled plastic pins, including the design techniques and several case studies, are included.

This will help to explain the basics of this important technique and will be used as reference to design the slope stabilisation scheme using recycled plastic pins.
