Rainfall induceddeformations of road embankments

 

The paper describes erosion, shallow instabilities and fill collapse induced by heavy rainralls in several road embankments. Collapse oedometer and suction controlled shear tests were performed on samples recovered in borings. A coupled unsaturated flow-deformation analysis has heen carried out to investigate the risk of future failures and the remaining collapse potential of the fill in case of further heavy rains.
