Investigation of rock slope deformation with time

  • Stepanov V. Y. 


An analysis of rheologic processes in slopes is considered on the basis of in situ investigations of deformation development in rock slopes. The value of irreversible and seasonal deformations is determined. Seismic influence on deformation is estimated and the coefficient of viscosity for variously fractured rocks is evaluated.

Recherches sur les Deformations de Pentes Rocheuses en Fonction du Temps


L’article analyse les processus rhéologiques de pentes en se basant sur des recherches in situ concernant le progrès des déformations des talus rocheux. On distingue les valeurs des déformations irréversibles et saisonnières; on estime l’influence des séismes sur la déformation et on évalue le coefficient de viscosité pour des roches diversement fracturées.
