Abstract
This paper presents a centrifuge model of a silty clay slope. The increase of the gravity accel-eration is applied to the slope under unsaturated conditions. The slope is wetted in flight by means of water injection from the bottom. The deformation of the slope and the subsequent failure is analyzed. In order to avoid difficulties in the installation of sensors in the prototype, the model was built in a box of transparent walls and the slope behavior during the flight was recorded using a digita...
