LANDSLIDES

LANDSLIDES CAN OCCUR ONLY ON SLOPES WHOSE INCLINATION IS GREATER THAN THE ANGLE OF FRICTION. FOR DRY AND COHESIONLESS MATERIALS, THE ANGLE OF FRICTION IS FAIRLY IDENTICAL WITH THE ANGLE OF RESPOSE, BUT FOR COHESIVE MATERIALS THERE IS NO SUCH RELATION AND NOT VERY MUCH IS KNOWN ABOUT THEIR ANGLES OF FRICTION. THE EXISTING KNOWLEDGE IS SUMMARIZED HERE.
