GEOSTRUCTURAL ANALYSIS AND SLOPE STABILITY

SULLA STABILITA DEI VERSANTI MEDIANTE ANALISI GEOSTRUTTURALE

The results are given of a detailed examination of the structural geologic characteristics of the eastern slope of mount moregallo, near lecco, Italy, aimed at identifying (even without laboratory tests) the areas most susceptible to risk of landslip. The method proposed consists largely in the reconstruction of the development of the main discontinuities of the rock mass, and in analysing their origins. The resulting parameters are used to identify not only the most fractured areas, but also those areas of potential risk which are not fully evident from surface examinations. The temperature, rainfall and tectonics of the region are discussed. (TRRL)
