Abstract
A simplified method for the assessment of the reactivation potential of narrow mudslides is proposed. The method uses the factor of safety, calculated by 2D limit equilibrium method, but incorporating an additional strength component due to the friction in the lateral margins of the mudslide. The method was applied to three mudslides in the eastern Pyrenees. The location of the sliding surface was estimated from transversal cross-sections, and the safety factor was calculated using the residual ...
