Abstract: It is important to consider both the geotechnical engineering and the engineering geology implications of static and dynamic behavior of landslides. In studying landslides one must consider mechanical characterization of the materials, appropriate modeling and analysis of landslides, geologic setting that results in landslide, and geomorphology indicative of landslide susceptible terrain. This proceedings, Landslides under Static and Dynamic Conditions: Analysis, Monitoring, and Mitigation, contains papers presented at the ASCE National Convention in San Diego, California on October 23, 1995. They discuss topics of analysis, monitoring and mitigation. Case study landslides come from various locations including Maine, Kentucky, Southern California, and France with various geotechnical conditions.
