JTC1 Workshop on Advances in Landslide Understanding



Date From 24.05.2017 to 26.05.2017


Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya
Campus Nord
Jordi Girona, 1-3
08034 Barcelona

The Joint Technical Committee on Natural Slopes and Landslides (JTC1) of the International Society for Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering, The International Society for Rock Mechanics and the International Association for Engineering Geology organize the First JTC1 Workshop on Advances in Landslide Understanding, to be held in Barcelona in May 24th-26th 2017.

The aim of the workshop is to promote discussion between scientists and engineers on topics which require attention because of difficulties in identification, triggering causes, mechanisms, modelling and prevention, such as:

  • Brittle failures / First time failures
  • Transition slow-fast motion
  • Stability of weathered profiles
  • Compound landslides
  • Landslides in reservoirs
  • Landslides in mines and tailing deposits
  • Soil - atmosphere interaction
