From a large number of data on the relation between surface layer thickness and slope angle, the ultimate thickness and mode thickness could be obtained in each slope angle. Assuming that the slope failure occurs at the surface layer with the mode thickness, the strength parameters of the materials can be obtained by the reverse calculation based on Infinite Slope analysis. This calculation indicated that cohesion of materials has an influence on the mode thickness of surface layer.-from Japanese Geomorphological Union
