  • A new attraction-detachment model for explaining flow sliding in clay-rich tephras

    Kluger, Max O.; Moon, Vicki G.; Kreiter, Stefan; Lowe, David J.; Churchman, G.Jock; Hepp, Daniel A.; Seibel, David; Jorat, M. Ehsan; Mörz, Tobias (The Geological Society of America, 2017-02-01)
    Altered pyroclastic (tephra) deposits are highly susceptible to landsliding, leading to fatali-ties and property damage every year. Halloysite, a low-activity clay mineral, is commonly associated with landslide-prone layers ...
  • Sensitive pyroclastic soils in the Bay of Plenty, New Zealand: microstructure to failure mechanisms

    Moon, Vicki G.; Mills, Pip R.; Kluger, Max O.; Lowe, David J.; Churchman, G.Jock; de Lange, Willem P.; Hepp, Daniel A.; Kreiter, Stefan; Mörz, T. (New Zealand Geotechnical Society, 2017)
    Sensitive soils derived from weathered rhyolitic pyroclastic materials are associated with many landslides in the Bay of Plenty. Undrained, consolidated static triaxial tests show contractive p’-q’ plots, strain-softening ...
