Abstract: Bishop and Bjerrum have hypothesized that the critical period for stability of a slope excavated in weak clay soil would not occur at the end of the excavation period but, rather, would occur some time after completion of the excavation when the pore-water pressures in the slope corresponded to natural seepage conditions; for natural seepage conditions the pore-water pressures would no longer be influenced by the effects of stress changes in the soil caused by excavation of the slope. Evidence in support of t…
