Abstract
The paper describes first the theoretical framework of a "single layer" three phase material. The formulation is general and particular cases are dry and fully saturated soils. The formulation and discretization of the motion and balance equations is presented. Two constitutive equations are used in the applications described: A brittle model for saturated soils and a Mohr-Coulomb elastoplastic soil formulated in terms of net stress and suction. Three aspects of the behaviour of landslides are d...
