<p class="MsoNormal"><span style="mso-ansi-language: EN-US;" lang="EN-US">Mass movements are frequent natural phenomena and especially dangerous due to increased population and irregular settlements in mountainous areas. Carrying out studies using methods that allow the numerical evaluation of their behavior is essential to mitigate and prevent these...

<p>This work presents a geological-geotechnical risk map of gravitational mass movements and a susceptibility map to shallow translational slides to Vila Nova community, located in the municipality of Colombo, Brazil. The first map was created through a qualitative mapping methodology and the second one was elaborated using a deterministic method of slope ...

The destabilizing effect of groundwater is one of the major causes for landslides, which represent a major hazard to human life and the environment. Groundwater lowering is of ten the most efficient way to stabilize large unstable ground masses. Among groundwater lowering measures, drainage tunnels have several advantages, although construction costs may be prop...

Due to the complexity and uncertainty involved in mass movements, it is not possible to predict their occurrence with accuracy. This uncertainty is due to the space-time variability of physical soil parameters and processes, which determine the boundary conditions of the problem. In this study, we analyzed the influence of spatial variability of the parameters t...
