Slope failure such as shallow landslide is commonly caused by high intensity of rainfall in long period. Lot of studies have been showed to investigate the slope failure induced by rainfall, but the mechanism of slope failure is still not clearly simplified. In order to understanding the failure mechanism of the slopes, the experiments were conducted in flume with constant inclination of 45o and sand thickness of the slope. The flume used as slope simulator to perform test on slope with different rainfalls intensity were considered as variable. The model of slope is made of sandy soil because many slope failure induced by rainfall occur in sandy soil. The slope failure mechanism which are pore pressure and water content in slopes were recorded by using piezometer and advanced Imko TDRs respectively. The type of failure of slope induced by rainfall also were observed and discussed.
