AbstractIt is the purpose of this Digest to direct attention to the slope stability problem as it relates to clays and to present information on the factors that affect the stability of slopes. Recommendations are given as to the precautions that should be taken to prevent tragedies. Although the clays of the St. Lawrence valley are emphasized, the method of analysis and the corrective measures described can be applied to clays in general.
