The monitoring of unstable or potentially unstable areas is a necessary operation every time you cannot remove the conditions of risk. So, in these cases landslide monitoring represents a very crucial mitigation operation, that is usually done by using conventional investigation devices. Generally, traditional landslide monitoring technologies, such as inclinometers, extensometers, LVDT and TDR based instrumentations, permit to define, if correctly positioned and with adequate accuracy, the critical values

The aim of this study is to analyze the deterioration of the stone commercially known as “Mendicino calcarenite”, used for the building of two important portals in Cosenza (Italy), belonging to the Church of “San Francesco di Paola” (XVI century) and “Palazzo Bombini” (XVII century), evaluating, by means of site and laboratory tests, changes in petrophysical and mechanical properties. Building type analysis of stone decay was obtained through a field survey and direct measurements. Mechanical p

The design of appropriate mitigation measures to protect from landslides require the knowledge of the physical and mechanical processes governing their propagation. This knowledge can derive from experience, carefully verified and modeled through specific rheological models that take into account the main physical and mechanical properties referred to normal stream flows, hyperconcetrated flows, mudflows, debris flows, rock avalanches and their multiphase nature (flow like or granular). To predict the spee

Earthquake-induced landslides should be viewed, in the perspective of natural risk, like “domino effects” since they represent hazardous phenomena induced by independent triggering events. In this sense, the probability of an earthquake-induced landslide occurrence is lower with respect to that related to the earthquake itself. However, at the same time, the induced damage become much more intense thus increasing the related risk. Italy takes advantage from one of the most ancient and complete historica
