Soft and partly sensitive clays along the fjords of northern Norway pose a challenge for infrastructure. Learning from failures is essential in providing guidelines for future geotechnical work in such areas. A shoreline landslide with a volume up to 1.4 million m3 took place close to Soerkjosen...

This paper presents a recommended practice for the use of strength anisotropy in stability calculations. The recommendations are based on laboratory data from high quality block samples collected by NGI from more than 20 sites. The strength anisotropy was correlated against natural water content...
