The paper presents the analysis of the long-term stability of a large unsupported cave excavated in granular cohesionless material in Ficulle, Italy. The stability of the cave arises from a ‘cohesive’ term in the shear strength criterion and this paper investigates the source of such cohesive term. Contrary to expectations, the material appeared to be granular (cohesionless) at the touch. The investigation started by determining whether the stability of the cave was owed to any cementation bondi...
