    Abstract

    Failures and landslides of unstable slopes in uncontrolled waste dumps may cause damage to the infrastructure in the vicinity of the closer and wider area of the dump, in addition environmental damage, even death. In order to anticipate and avoid this fact, a specific geotechnical site investigation and characterization programme should be conducted to determine the required geotechnical engineering, soil mechanics and seismic parameters of the soil layers of unstable slopes of uncontrolled waste dumps. Subsequently, the adequacy of the conditions of the waste dump and the stability of the foundation soil and the slope stability of the dump should be explored, so that the necessary methods for complete stabilisation and long term safety and security of the site under the most demanding conditions, such as seismicity and water saturation, are determined and applied. The dissertation will discuss the implementation methodology of a comprehensive geotechnical site investigation programme that is required in order to identify the stability conditions of the uncontrolled waste dumps. International state of the art and practice for Slope stability Analysis methods will also be presented and discussed. Furthermore, the best geotechnical and economic intervention measures for the arrangement, stabilisation, reinforcement, shoring, retaining and securing of the slopes and the bodies of unstable UWDS from failures and landslides will be presented. Finally, the «Peania UWDS» Case Study in Athens - Greece will be analysed and presented.
