- ... Both rainfall characteristics (rainfall intensity and duration) and saturated permeability of soil may influence the type and mechanism of surficial slope failures. In general, the failures can be initiated by two mechanisms, i.e. loss of matric suction through propagation of wetting front, and rise of water table. Up to date, there are still no clear indicators to identify the dominant parameters ...
