Abstract

The fundamental characters at each of three stages of creep deformation of rock masses are discussed. A model, a friction element and a dashpot element connected in parallel, suitable for middle and short time prognosis is suggested--landslide happens at accelerated creep stage and its mechanism may be described by progressive deterioration (assuming linear decrease with time) of material parameters which denote the friction and the dashpot of rock masses. The verification for the model is carried out by comparing theoretical results with measured results of three typical landslides.

Time Prognosis of Landslide Based on Unstable Creep

St. Louis, Missouri

The fundamental characters at each of three stages of creep deformation of rock masses are discussed. A model, a friction element and a dashpot element connected in parallel, suitable for middle and short time prognosis is suggested--landslide happens at accelerated creep stage and its mechanism may be described by progressive deterioration (assuming linear decrease with time) of material parameters which denote the friction and the dashpot of rock masses. The verification for the model is carried out by comparing theoretical results with measured results of three typical landslides.
