LANDSLIDES AND THEIR CONTROL

A FOUR-FOLD GEOLOGICAL CLASSIFICATION OF LANDSLIDES IS USED FOR ORGANIZING THIS BOOK: SUPERFICIAL SLIDES, SLIDES IN WEAK ROCKS, SLIDES IN SOLID ROCKS, AND OTHER TYPES. THE AUTHORS GIVE EXAMPLES OF THEIR OWN STRESS MEASUREMENTS IN SLIDES USING ROCK-MECHANICS METHODS; THEY POINT OUT THAT THESE METHODS ARE WELL SUITED IN VIEW OF THE SMALL DEFORMATION MODULI AND THEREFORE RELATIVELY LARGE DISPLACEMENTS THAT ACCOMPANY THE RELEASE OF STRAIN WHEN STRESS MEASUREMENTS ARE CARRIED OUT IN CLAYS AND WEAK ROCKS. THE BOOK ALSO REVIEWS VARIOUS METHODS OF STABILIZING SLIDES, GIVING EXAMPLES FROM PRACTICE. /AUTHOR/
