Abstract: Movements and failure of cuts and natural slopes constitute an important geotechnical problem that involves a variety of geomaterials in a variety of geological and climatic contexts, and which has a major socio-economic impact in many countries. The paper reviews the state of knowledge in this domain, examining the basic aspects of soil mechanics that are relevant to the context of slopes, the importance of water on slope behaviour, and then the different stages of slope movements: pre-failure, failure, post-… Show more

“…Their geometrical and kinematical characteristics may, in turn, differ depending on the factors that drive and accompany the slope instability processes (Leroueil 2001;Cascini et al 2009), leading to different risk scenarios. Therefore, regardless of the scale of landslide risk analysis and zoning adopted, it is necessary to understand the landslide mechanisms that may occur in the study area.…”

“…A gradual reduction in AE rate occurs as slope movement and therefore waveguide backfill deformation ceases. Leroueil (2001) presented a conceptual velocity-time profile for the 'reactivation stage' of slope movements that possessed the shape of a normal distribution, and hence velocity is expected to increase exponentially with time during reactivated slope movements until a peak velocity is reached and the velocity subsequently decays exponentially until movement ceases. AE rate (RDC/hour)-time relationships for deformation events at Hollin Hill are analogous to such behaviour; however the AE measurements demonstrate that the velocity profiles for reactivated slope movements at the Hollin Hill site are predominantly log normal in shape.…”
