Abstract

The Geotechnical Engineering Office (GEO) has been steering technical development work to facilitate enhancement in natural terrain landslide risk management in Hong Kong. Collaborations between GEO, the academia from both local and overseas institutes and geotechnical professions have been initiated in recent years to carry out studies on various aspects, including the development of design methodologies for debris-resisting barriers, the investigation of debris impact mechanics and debris–barrier interaction as well as the improvement of detailing of debris-resisting barriers. The concerted efforts have put Hong Kong in a leading position amongst other countries in the area of combating la..
