AbstractIn April 1963, a small earthflow involving about 30,000 cu yd of clay took place on the side of a deep ravine near Breckenridge Station, approximately 15 miles northwest of Ottawa. The Soil Mechanics Section of the Division of Building Research is conducting an investigation of the landslide, including stability analyses in terms of both total and effective stresses. This report presents the results obtained thus far in the investigation.
