Strength parameter selection framework for evaluating the design life of
clay cut slopes. Proceedings of the Institution of Civil Engineers -
Geotechnical Engineering. DOI: 10.1680/jgeen.21.00125.
This repository contains the dataset used to produce the figures in the related publication and consists of material strain softening data, assumed in-situ initial stress profiles, modelled time series of slope surface displacements, derived values for inverse velocity of the modelled slopes, residual factor change with time, the failure geometry and time to failure along with data on design life for differing slope geometries. See the file "Read Me and Metadata Record.pdf" for more information on the contents.
