Rotational slope failure is a major risk at many worksites, and it's important to take the necessary steps to prevent this type of failure. But what is it, and how can you mitigate the risk of this potentially dangerous situation?
What is Rotational Slope Failure?
Rotational slope failure occurs when soil slips along a curved surface, resulting in a landslide or debris flow. This type of failure happens when the underlying material is weak and is unable to withstand the forces of gravity and water pressure.
