Planning slopes in shale and other rocks: M38-8/27E-PDF

"In initiating this paper the suggestion was made that it should be on the design of slopes in shale. As the design of slopes in any rock at the present time is very difficult, the paper has been written on the planning of the slopes. The word 'planning' is to be interpreted in the more general sense of 'considerations to be aware of in planning' rather than being a definite procedure or check list for practical purposes. The subject is treated under the headings of: design - types of slope failure - classification of shales - case histories - and planning"--Introd., p. 2.
