The aim of the study was to apply hazard mapping methods which are used in Sweden, Norway and Canada for fine-grained soils, on the Åby test site and to evaluate the differences in-between them. In these countries the soil conditions are quite similar. During and after the latest deglaciation soft clays were deposited along coastlines, lakes and valleys in which many large landslides have occurred. A special type of sensitive clay, quick clay, may be found in the countries studied. The chosen… CONTINUE READING
