Abstract
Catastrophic landslides are often preceded by a stage of creeping behavior during a certain time. The paper focusses on the transitional behavior from slow creeping motions to rapid events by evoking two phenomena: the strain rate effects on friction (which explain the creeping motion) and the thermo-mechanical interaction at the scale of the sliding surface and its vicinity. A coupled formulation for the relevant physical phenomena is presented. It was formulated in dimensionless terms with the...
