  • ISSN : 1021-2000



Dumps of waste anthracite duff built on hillsides pose an interesting problem in slope stability. The strength characteristics of duff wer nvestigated by means of laboratory and in situ tests. Through these measurements, a preliminary analysis was made of the stability of dumps on sloping ground. A modified cone-vane instrument, used for measuring the in situ strength of granular materials, including duff, is descriptionbed.
