Theme 4 Modern Methods Used in Study of Mass Movements In Situ Measurements of Deformations, of Mechanical Properties of Rocks and Stress Conditions in the Rock Masses Determination of Residual Shear Strength in Disturbed Zones Model Tests General Report

Summary

The report deals with several aspects of field investigation, particularly with the study of stress and hydrogeological conditions in slopes. Some questions concerning the shear strength are discussed. Special attention is paid to the progressive disturbance of slopes, mainly in the presence of major residual stresses. In connection with this the differences in the safety factors of slopes are considered.

Méthodes modernes employées dans l’étude des mouvements de masse

Résumé

Le rapport s’occuppe de quelques questions concernant des recherches de travées, et en particulier de celles relatives à la tension et les conditions hydrogéologiques dans les pentes. Des questions concernant la résistance au glissement fait l’objet de discussion. On montre plus en détail l’évolution de la désagrégation de la pente, surtout en présence des tensions résiduelles plus importantes dans le territoire. Ceci a trait également aux difféerences dans le concours des facteurs de la sécurité des pentes.
