LANDSLIDES IN CLAY

THE ST. LAWRENCE VALLEY IS ONE OF THE MORE ACTIVE LANDSLIDE AREAS IN THE WORLD. THE STABILITY OF THE CLAY SLOPES IN THE ST. LAWRENCE AND OTTAWA VALLEYS HAS BEEN STUDIED FOR MORE THAN A DECADE BY THE DIVISION OF BUILDING RESEARCH. THESE STUDIES HAVE RESULTED IN A NUMBER OF RESEARCH PAPERS IN WHICH INDIVIDUAL LANDSLIDES ARE DESCRIBED AND VARIOUS ASPECTS OF THE GENERAL PROBLEM ARE CONSIDERED. IT IS THE PURPOSE OF THIS DIGEST TO DIRECT ATTENTION TO THE SLOPE STABILITY PROBLEM AS IT RELATES TO CLAYS AND TO PRESENT INFORMATION ON THE FACTORS THAT EFFECT THE STABILITY OF SLOPES AND WHICH MUST BE TAKEN INTO CONSIDERATION IN A STABILITY ANALYSIS. THE METHOD OF ANALYSIS AND THE CORRECTIVE MEASURES DESCRIBED, CAN BE APPLIED TO CLAYS IN GENERAL.
