Abstract:The use of the field vane shear test for measuring the undrained peak and residual shear strength was also reviewed. A correction factor for use of the vane shear strengths in seismic stability evaluations was proposed. The validity of the proposed correction factor was verified using the Fourth Avenue, L-Street, Sainte-Thecle, and Saint-Adelphe earthquake induced landslides.
