The making plans and writing of this booklet has taken particularly longer than I had initially meant; what all started as a modest literary undertaking for 2 second-year scientific scholars has improved over 8 years to turn into an entire publication. the subject material lent itself all too simply to a sen­ sationalist procedure but, nonetheless, a strictly medical procedure could most likely have ended in a lifeless dry textual content of little curiosity to the overall reader.

Tests with much different diameter cables should be conducted to clarify the relationship between cable diameter and impact force. 3. The sliding body shows different behavior depending on the velocity. When the velocity was small, it behaved as a sliding mass, and when the velocity was high, it became a turbidity flow. The tests show that the velocity at the turning point depends on the quality of the soil mass. What factors determine the critical velocity at the turning point should be clarified in the next stage.
