Landslides and Engineered Slopes. Experience, Theory and Practice contains the invited lectures and all papers presented at the 12th International Symposium on Landslides, (Naples, Italy, 12-19 June 2016). The book aims to emphasize the relationship between landslides and other natural hazards. Hence, three of the main sessions focus on Volcanic-induced landslides, Earthquake-induced landslides and Weather-induced landslides respectively, while the fourth main session deals with Human-induced landslides. Some papers presented in a special session devoted to "Subareal and submarine landslide processes and hazard” and in a “Young Session” complete the books. Landslides and Engineered Slopes. Experience, Theory and Practice underlines the importance of the classic approach of modern science, which moves from experience to theory, as the basic instrument to study landslides. Experience is the key to understand the natural phenomena focusing on all the factors that play a major role. Theory is the instrument to manage the data provided by experience following a mathematical approach; this allows not only to clarify the nature and the deep causes of phenomena but mostly, to predict future and, if required, manage similar events. Practical benefits from the results of theory to protect people and man-made works. Landslides and Engineered Slopes. Experience, Theory and Practice is useful to scientists and practitioners working in the areas of rock and soil mechanics, geotechnical engineering, engineering geology and geology.

This book, with contributions from international landslide experts, presents in-depth knowledge of theories, practices, and modern numerical techniques for landslide analysis. Landslides are a reoccurring problem across the world and need to be properly studied for their mitigation and control. Due to increased natural and anthropogenic activities, chances of landslide occurrence and associated hazards have increased. The book focuses on landslide dynamics, mechanisms and processes along with hazard mitigation using geo-engineering, structural, geophysical and numerical tools. The book contains a wealth of the latest information on all aspects of theory, practices and modelling tools and techniques involved in prediction, prevention, monitoring, mitigation and risk analysis of landslide hazards. This book will bring the reader up to date on the latest trends in landslide studies and will help planners, engineers, scientists and researchers working on landslide engineering.

Impacts of landslides range from site destruction, through problemsfor the maintenance of buildings and infrastructure, to animpediment for economic development. Previous attempts to addresslandslide risk have either treated components of the problem inisolation or characterised the wider issue from just a singlediscipline perspective. This book takes a holistic view oflandslide hazard and risk through the development of integratedapproaches to analysis, perception and management. Landslide Hazard and Risk brings together a wide range ofexperience, covering the social, economic and cultural context,management options, and the application of science and technology,for the reduction of risk from landslides. This book is dividedinto four major parts covering conceptual models in approachinglandslide risk, evaluation of risk, management of risk andend-to-end solutions of risk. It examines risk assessment andmanagement from theory to practice, from conventional methodologyto future possibilities. Provides a range of multidisciplinary approaches and guidanceon their appropriate use. Presents specifications and contexts for the next generation ofprocess models. Focuses on the means and methods of investigation, and thetreatment of data to represent the probabilities and uncertaintiesof hazard and risk. Evaluates state-of-the-art techniques and futuredirections. This book is essential reading for professionals and practitionersin landscape, watershed and hazard management, as well as riskanalysts, geomorphologists, hydrologists, foresters andenvironmental consultants. Would be excellent background readingfor researchers and graduate students interested in landslides,hazards, risk assessment and slope stability in Departments ofGeography, Earth Science, Environmental Science, Civil Engineeringand Planning.
