Progressiva skred i långsträckta naturliga slänter : Orsaker, förlopp och utbredning hos skred i deformationsmjuknande jordar (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

After the large landslide in Tuve (Gothenburg, 1977), the author began developing a finite difference model for slope stability analysis taking the deformation-softening of soft sensitive clays into consideration. In the model, the mean down-slope deformation in each element caused by normal forces is maintained compatible with the deformation generated by shear stresses. He developed software for the model and presented it at international soil mechanics conferences during the 1980-ies. In 2000 he summarized his findings in a Licentiate thesis. An easy-to-use spread-sheet has also been developed. In this thesis the author conveys his experiences of slide modeling focusing on the nature of triggering agents and the different phases that a slope may undergo before its stability becomes truly critical.
