Abstract
Actual deformation mechanisms during sliding are a consequence of several interacting aspects: the geometry of the basal sliding surface, the degree of heterogeneity of the moving mass, the presence of internal weak or hard zones and the stress-strain behaviour of the involved materials. Except in simple cases (pure rotational or planar motions) the development of an admissible mechanism leads to internal shearing. As a result, extensive damage may result, especially in brittle materials. The pa...
