Fast Sliding of Non-liquefied Soil

Chapter
Part of the Geotechnical, Geological, and Earthquake Engineering book series (GGEE, volume 20)

Abstract

Fast slope failures are important because they frequently leave no time available for their remediation or even escape of people. Several types of fast slope failures occur, such as:

• Slides on single or multiple surfaces

• Rock falls and rolls

• Soil and rock avalanches, debris run-outs and fast spreads

• Soil flows
