Drained residual shear strength is considered applicable for the analysis of slopes with a preexisting shear surface. Torsional ring and direct shear tests were performed to investigate the gain in strength, if any, along a preexisting shear surface with time. ...

To examine the mechanism for this landsliding characteristic in the Shiraishi area of Kisawa village (Japan), samples (weathered serpentinite) were taken from the field, and their shear behaviour was examined using ring shear tests.

Pleistocene valley fills dominated by glaciolacustrine sediments commonly occur in southern British Columbia and northern Washington. The fills contain multiple glaciolacustrine units separated by glacial tills and outwash gravels reflecting multiple episodes ...

This paper presents recommendations for selecting the type and magnitude of drained shear strength parameters for analysis of landslides. In particular, the importance, existence, and use of the cohesion shear strength parameter is reviewed. For slope stability ...

Current design guidelines for geosynthetic-reinforced soil structures disagree over the shear strength parameters that should be selected to characterize the backfill material. Most geosynthetic reinforcing materials are classified as extensible inclusions ...

Reevaluation of the fourth avenue landslide in Anchorage that occurred during 1964 Alaskan earthquake based on ring shear and in situ vane shear tests of the undrained peak and residual shear strength of bootlegger cove clay. Comperison with back analysis ...

The study of slope behaviour is a very complex issue, which is not always considered in the right way. In particular the problem of slope movements is often ignored, notwithstanding its relevance in the risk analysis. The paper is devoted to this fundamental ...

The drained residual shear strength of overconsolidated clays is an important parameter in assessing the stability of slopes that contain a preexisting shear surface. Laboratory Bromhead ring shear apparatus and 32 clay evaluation of drained residual shear ...
