This paper describes a visco-plastic model which, using recorded groundwater levels, is capable of simulating the velocity trend in landslides. It also deals with the phenomenon of shear strength regain that occurs in montmorillonitic clays constituting slopes during periods when landslides are stationary. The model has been validated with long-term observations of a clay slope affected by a mudslide.
