AbstractThe Paper outlines the geological factors and soil conditions at sites of flow slides, and indicates thesimilarity of the physical properties of cohesive soils in the affected regions of Canada, Norway, andSweden. The causes and characteristics of flow slides are discussed, and the observed mechanism isused for stability analyses. The proposed methods of analysis are applied to flow slides, and the estimatesare compared with observations.
