The alkathene tubing method for locating the slip plane in embankments and cuttings is described. Auger tubing is driven vertically to a depth below the probable slip surface. The alkathene tubing is placed into the auger tubing hole and is allowed to deform by the shearing action of the slip. A mandrel on a cord is suspended down the tubing to measure the depth at which the deformation occurs.
