The problem of stability of natural and artificial slopes is one of the biggest problems in geotechnics. Landslides occur as a result of instability, and imbalances in the soil are a ubiquitous problem that often has harmful consequences. In order to detect and prevent the potential dangers of such occurrences in a timely manner, continuous […]
