Abstract

This chapter begins with a brief synopsis of landslide repair methodologies developed over the past 70 years. Early attempts at stabilizing slopes focused on em-placement of toe buttresses and inclusion of subdrainage. As earthwork equipment became larger and more capable, the removal and recompaction of entire slide masses became commonplace. Over the past decade, geotextile and geomembrane products have become available that can significantly alter the options for repair, especially under conditions of restricted access or poor weather. In the balance of the chapter, I seek to introduce the reader to some of these products and to case histories of ways in which they have been combined to effect novel solutions to slope stability problems.
