SYNOPSIS.

 Slopes are typically categorized in two types: natural and artificially-made slopes. Natural slopes are formed due to physical processes that include plate tectonics and weathering/erosion of rock masses that result in material deposition. Artificially-made slopes are established to facilitate infrastructure projects, ex., embankments, earth dams, road cuttings etc.

The stability of a slope is of critical importance in Geotechnical Engineering applications. A slope movement (also referred as a landslide) can lead to severe issues including infrastructure damage or/and casualties. Slope stability depends on the capability of the soil mass to withstand its gravitational forces, the additional loads acting on the slope, as well as potential dynamic loads (such as that of an earthquake).

A common misconception is that landslides occur in steep and remote slopes and do not actually impact human infrastructure. However, statistics show that most of world’s regions are impacted by (at least) some types of landslide phenomena that can be triggered by several factors including erosion, precipitation, earthquakes, human activity etc.

Landslides may occur rapidly or progress steadily at a fixed rate. They are common in soils and rockmasses with poor mechanical properties (highly fractured or weathered). However, a landslide can be triggered also by deformations along discontinuity layers of strong rocks. The nature and type of landslide phenomena are complex and are further analyzed below.


SPEAKER BACKGROUND.

Zulfaiq Fikri Bin Mohd Karib, is a Civil Engineer at Cawangan Kejuruteraan Cerun since 2016. With 6 years of experience in slope engineering, he is responsible in performing landslide forensic mainly for all government premises involved. Every time when complaint is received, he is accountable to provide a report, propose a method of rectification work and prepare cost estimation required to clients. Apart from that, he is also involved in carry-out the design work as well as monitoring on-site construction implementation for slope repair projects.

In addition of being involved in providing technical advice related to slopes, he is also participating in assisting an internal course for officers at Cawangan Kejuruteraan Cerun to share a knowledge with the engineers especially on design theories and software analysis (Slope-W).

Said Rezuan Bin Said Kasim, Assistant Civil Engineer at Slope Engineering Branch, Public Works Department Malaysia since 2016. With 10 years in the industry, his responsibility is to identify the cause and appropriate repairs to keep slopes on government premises in a safe condition, helping ministries in the Malaysian government on landslides, attending conferences, meetings and industry events. He has helped team members to develop their skills as potential designers for slope repair work.

He assists engineers in providing information for landslide forensic investigations, as well as providing relevant data to engineers especially in slope repair design theory, post -assembly calculations based on Eurocode and British Standard for construction fixing as well as repair cost estimates. In his engineering career, he has been involved in various slope repair projects, including forensic advisory services as well as repairs for private and government projects such as school, hospital and infrastructure projects as well as housing and other agency projects in Malaysia.

Bakhtiar Affandy bin Othman a Civil Engineer at Slope Engineering Branch, Public Works Department Malaysia since 2020. He is specialized in geotechnical engineering field with 10 years of experience in industry and university.  He obtained his Bachelor of Civil Engineering from Universiti Teknologi Malaysia, Johor in year 2008 and started his carrier as civil engineer with civil engineering contractor in Batu Pahat, Johor. After 1 year, he received a scholarship from MOSTI to continue his study in geotechnical engineering in 2009 at Universiti Teknologi Malaysia. In 2012, he was accepted to work with Public Works Department as Civil Engineer. To gain another experience and knowledge, he was continuing his study in PhD in 2017 in earthquake and liquefaction of soils. His engineering experience wraps other engineering specializations as well such as design engineer for slope repair works, responsible as technical advisor for slope works and he leverages his experiences by involving in inspection on large scale slope failure with other experts from various agencies.

             His extended exposure and experience in slope work enable him to provide a speech and technical talk on slope and other settlement problem to agencies and technical staff. Apart from that, he has actively present and writing an international and national academic paper/journal for more than 20 papers.
