Cohesion (c) and friction angle (φ) are the two significant parameters of soil and on the basis of these properties the stability and instability of the slope segment can be assessed. The drained shear strength is the shear strength of the soil when pore fluid pressures, generated during the course of shearing the soil, are able to dissipate during shearing. The present study area of the Shivkhola watershed of Darjiling Himalaya is dominated by slope instability. >> Cohesion; Internal friction angle; Sleeve friction; CPT and CPTu; In situ tests.
