This e-book was once written with the target of delivering geotechnical engineers with a pragmatic instruction on the best way to focus on landslides in addition to of acquaint ing them with the current kingdom of actual basics and clinical expla international locations for the phenomenon of landslides. The ebook is predicated on my own reviews, amassed over many years of labor as geotechnical engineer on building websites in Austria and plenty of different elements of the realm, which I additionally use in my lectures on the Technical collage of Graz, Austria. the tactic of stabilizing lands lides by means of short-circuit conductors has been built on my own and has been patented in Germany and Italy. a couple of guides already exists (see References) in this technique, and naturally I additionally deal during this publication with its theoretical and functional points. the following i need to thank my assistants, Messrs. J. Dalmatiner, okay. Eigenberger, E. Garber, H. Kienberger, R. Pötscher, and W. Prodinger, for operating with me on quite a few tasks and for supporting me within the drafting of a few chapters of this e-book, Mr. A. Trippl for getting ready the illustrations, and my spouse for plenty of a Sunday labored via with me.

So far, a closed solution of Kötter's equations (a partial differential equation) has been 40 4 Theoretical Basis for the Calculation of Slope Safety obtained only for special problems; in the common case only approximation methods can be used. 1 Planar Test Surfaces Exact solutions are obtained for planar, infinitely long, homogeneous, cohesionless slopes. There is an equilibrium of forces. All normal stresses (1;" act parallel to each other; therefore direction and value of normal strength N; may be clearly determined.
5 m below the zone of division, strong slide movements set in during excavation work-obviously taking place on an old slip surface stemming from "solifluction"-thereby setting the upper layer in motion. 04 bar.

Biezysko and Starewsky describe the difficulties encountered when carrying out cuts in such soils, and show that the relocation of the road alignment to an uphill zone was the only possible alternative.
