Abstract [en]

A finite difference method is presented for progressive slides in long natural slopes. The method is based on a strain softening material model. A detailed worked out example is given as well as examples using a spread sheet PC program and a PC program for Windows. Several Scandinavian slides are analysed and discussed as case studies e g Tuve (1977), Surte (1951), Bekkelaget (1953), Rollsbo (1967), Rävekärr (1971), Tre-styckevattnet (1990) and Svärtaån (1938). The nature of down-slope progressive failures in natural slopes is described and the applicability of ideal-plastic failure analysis is questioned. Principles and procedures for investigation potential landslides are presented. A short historical background to the landslide problem is given in an introductory chapter.
