Ten state-of-the-art papers address both empirical and analytical aspects of clay and shale slope instability. Among the topics discussed in detail are limit equilibrium stability analysis, shear strength of clay and clayey colluvium, use of triaxial test data to evaluate viscoplastic slope movements, numerical modeling of pore pressure distribution in heterogeneous soils, rational analysis of.

Introduction. Landslides in sensitive clays represent a major hazard in the northern countries of the world such as Canada, Finland, Norway, Russia, Sweden.

Quick clay landslides are of two main types – stepwise and uninterrupted. In stepwise landslides, sufficient failed material liquefies that the debris from each step flows away from the slide scarp, leaving an unsupported unstable slope that, in turn, fails and flows by:   Landslides in Clays By Alexandre Collin, Translated by W.

An essential part of landslide hazard and risk assessment is the estimate of the runout distance of the landslide masses.

There is, however, little guidance available today on the estimation of the landslide runout in sensitive clays and no suitable model exists for predicting runout in sensitive by: 6.
