The statistical relationship between unconfined compressive strengths and the frequency distributions of slope gradients - A case study in northern Hungary


This paper focuses on the question of whether there is a deterministic connection between the slope gradient and unconfined compression strength (UCS) as a lithological factor and on describing the nature of this connection. Moreover, the AA. determined the sensitive statistical parameters in the statistical surface analyses. The surface analyses were carried out in an area extending over 1500 km2 in northern Hungary and containing parts of the uplifted Palaeozoic and Mesozoic basement and the semi-consolidated material of the Palaeogene and Neogene molasse sediments. Evident correlation can be shown between the UCS and the relative frequency of the slope gradient
