Environmental Geotechnics MOD002423

Coursework: Case Studies


To learn from specific events relating to Environmental Geotechnics through the production of a short report in the form of a case study of two of the following incidents:

The student will write two case studies (1000 words each) on two of the following incidents or projects:

1.      Loscoe landfill gas explosion (UK)

2.      The Stava tailings dam collapse (Italy)

3.      The Aberfan tip failure (Wales)

The case studies will contain a clear diagnostic from a geotechnical point of view of what went wrong, how the incident could have been avoided and what lessons were learnt.


The case studies should be presented as a document with a title page. Each case study should be presented in a formal style with numbered sections and should contain:

·         Not more than approximately 1000 words of text per case study.

·         Illustrations which are directly relevant to the report and the content of which is explained or referred in the text.

·         References within the text to sources of information and a complete list of all information sources consulted and used (Harvard referencing system).
