    Abstract

    Slope failures are disasters that happen all around the world. Occurrence of slope failures depends on number of factors. To safeguard the safety of the public from slope failure hazards, proper geotechnical input by the engineers with geotechnical experience is very important. The geotechnical input includes four important stages namely, planning, design, construction and maintenance. Whenever failures occur, engineers are responsible to the problems. The paper observed the assessment of slope failures.
