Abstract
Landslides and slope instabilities represent one of the most important problems in geotechnics causing significant damages around the world every year. Understanding the mechanics of the whole process is of particular importance for risk assessment. First, it is important to determine what areas may be susceptible to landsliding. In addition, it is essential to estimate the travelled distance and the velocity of the unstable mass in order to prevent severe damage. The need to develop solution sc...
