Abstract
The paper describes a thermo-hydro-mechanical formulation to model thermal-induced effects due to the irreversible work input generated during the soil deformation. The model was implemented into a Material Point calculation procedure. The method is applied to the analysis of landslides. A simple slope stability is first analysed. Mechanical work essentially dissipates in shearing bands which develop excess pore water pressures. The marked effect of soil permeability to control the slide motion ...
