During the past 4 years, investigations were made of several large cut and fill landslides along Interstate highways in Tennessee and North Carolina. Instrumentation played an important role in all investigations, both in determining the nature of the earth movements and in determining in situ soil properties. The types of instrumentation installed or used included inclinometers, piezometers, surface survey grids, Menard Pressure-meters, and in situ shear test devices. This paper discusses some of the problems and the resulting solutions found relating to instrumentation installation, data collection and interpretation, and use of the data in analysis.
