Abstract
To assess slopes’ movements as heavy rainfall consequences, the strategy to replace the field monitoring by the combination between the reduced physical model and numerical simulations can be envisaged. This strategy reduces the cost and makes the monitoring well efficiency by reducing its duration and considering variably saturated conditions. In this article, the macro gravity physical model is used as an alternative of the 1¿g model. So, the hydraulic gradient method is proposed to follow ...
