RESEARCH INTO THE SLIDING BEHAVIOUR OF SOILS WITH PARTICULAR REFERENCE TO ROAD CONSTRUCTION

ERFORSCHUNG RUTSCHMECHANISCHER VERHALTENSWEISEN VON BOEDEN UNTER BESONDERER BERUECKSICHTIGUNG DES STRASSENBAUES

LANDSLIDES CAUSED BY VARIOUS FACTORS SUCH AS CHANGES IN MOISTURE, CHANGES IN TEMPERATURE, MODIFICATION OF THE NATURAL PH-VALUE ETC. ARE TO BE ESTABLISHED, AND ECONOMICAL METHODS OF STABILIZING OR IMPROVING ALTERED SOIL FORMATIONS ARE TO BE DEVELOPED AND TESTED. SCIENTIFIC STUDIES ARE TO BE MADE IN PARTICULAR OF THE PHENOMENON OF THE BOUNDARY LAYER AND THE WAY IN WHICH IT CAN BE INFLUENCED BY STRUCTURAL MEASURES. ACCEPTABLE AND ECONOMIC METHODS OF SOIL STABILIZATION ARE TO BE DEVELOPED, PARTICULARLY FOR SOILS WHICH CANNOT BE STABILIZED, OR CAN ONLY BE STABILIZED UNECONOMICALLY, BY CONVENTIONAL METHODS. ATTEMPTS WILL ALSO BE MADE TO DEVELOP A WARNING SYSTEM FOR PARTICULARLY DANGEROUS SLOPES.
