Abstract

A natural landslide is mainly occurred by rainfall, snowmelt, earthquakes and construction works. Especially, the role of rainfall or snowmelt in slope stability is very important because it causes a decrease in shear strength by reducing the soil cohesion. If clay exists in the weathered soil, the physical characteristics such as viscosity and permeability are generally different from the condition without the clay. In this case, changes of permeability or viscosity due to the rainfall or snowmelt are dependent on the content of clay in soil. In order to calculate the variation in permeability according to the content of clay in soil, many researchers have conducted laboratory experiments or in-situ tests in the field. However, it is difficult to determine the property of the clay such as a viscosity because of its poor crystalline property. In order to solve this problem and to calculate permeability of clay under various dry densities, we used molecular dynamic (MD) simulation to examine the viscosity of micro scale and homogenization analysis (HA) method to expand micro material property to macro scale. In this research, we determined the permeability of clay with various dry densities due to the rainfall or snowmelt conditions by using MD/HA method.
