Abstract
Evaluating landslide risk and its consequences is hardly achieved by “safety factor” concepts, which essentially rely on static equilibrium concepts and forces. Rather, expected displacements, velocities and accelerations are key magnitudes which help to establish the risk of failure and assist in the management of its consequences. The paper focuses on three key aspects for landslide initiation and evolution which are difficult to quantify in practice and are also difficult to analyze by cu...
