A SIMPLIFIED MODEL DESCRIBING THE CYCLIC BEHAVIOR OF LIGHTLY OVERCONSOLIDATED CLAYS IN SIMPLE SHEAR by

The geological profile of submerged slopes of the continental shelf typically consists of normally to lightly overconsolidated clays with depths ranging from a few meters to a few hundred meters and very low slope angles. The stability of these slopes is often investigated with pseudo-static methods by reducing the dynamic loading to an equivalent inertial… CONTINUE READING
