ABSTRACT
The paper describes the geotechnical investigations and slope stability analyses that were performed for a newly designed coastal road in Constanta city, Romania. There had been performed site investigations and laboratory tests. The characteristic values were then computed according to Eurocode 7. The main stability problems were created by sea erosion and the existing sliding planes placed in reddish clay. It is well known the behavior of this macro-structured overconsolidated clay. As a secondary trigger mechanism, the water resulted from infiltrations had been considered.

Keywords: slope stability, back analysis, macrostructured clays
