  • Catastrophic landslides; the legacy of Vaiont 

    Alonso Pérez de Agreda, Eduardo (International Society for Rock Mechanics, 2013-12-12)
    Audiovisual
    Open Access
  • Deformation analysis of landslides: progressive failure, rate effects and thermal interactions 

    Alonso Pérez de Agreda, Eduardo (CRC Press, 2012)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Evaluating landslide risk and its consequences is hardly achieved by “safety factor” concepts, which essentially rely on static equilibrium concepts and forces. Rather, expected displacements, velocities and accelerations ...
  • Estudio de la estabilidad de edificios volcánicos mediante la utilización de sistemas de clasificación geomecánica y análisis con modelos analíticos y numéricos 

    del Potro, Rodrigo; Hurlimann Ziegler, Marcel (2009)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Large volcano sector and flank collapse events are amongst the most devastating geological processes and thus pose an important threat to nearby and far away populations. These landslides can incorporate up to hundreds of ...
  • Glossary of terms on Landslide Hazard and Risk 

    Corominas Dulcet, Jordi; Einstein, Herbert; Davies, Tim; Strom, Alexander; Zuccaro, Giuglio; Nadim, Farrokh; Verdel, Thierry (Springer International Publishing, 2014)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    In the last decades much effort has been devoted to the development of methodologies for landslide hazard and risk assessment. Although there are a few available glossaries, a review of the literature published in international ...
  • Quantitative analysis of risk from fragmental rockfalls 

    Corominas Dulcet, Jordi; Matas Casado, Gerard; Ruiz Carulla, Roger (2019-01)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Rockfalls are ubiquitous diffuse hazard in mountain regions, cliffs, and cutslopes, with the potential of causing victims and severely damaging buildings and infrastructures. A vast majority of detached rock masses break ...
  • Recommendations for the quantitative analysis of landslide risk 

    Corominas Dulcet, Jordi; van Westen, Cees; Frattini, P.; Cascini, L; Malet, Jean-Philippe; Fotopoulou, Stavroula D.; Catani, F; Mavrouli, Olga Christina; Pitilakis, Kyriazis D.; Winter, Mike (2014-05)
    Article
    Open Access
    This paper presents recommended methodologies for the quantitative analysis of landslide hazard, vulnerability and risk at different spatial scales (site-specific, local, regional and national), as well as for the verification ...
  • Shear strength degradation in claystones due to environmental effects 

    Pineda Jiménez, Jubert Andrés; Romero Morales, Enrique Edgar; De Gracia, Manuel; Sheng, Daichao (Thomas Telford, 2014-05)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    This note explores the influence of environmental effects, as those induced by cyclic changes in relative humidity, on the degradation of the shear strength parameters in Lilla claystone, a low-porosity clayey rock from ...
  • Slope stability under rapid drawdown conditions 

    Alonso Pérez de Agreda, Eduardo; Pinyol Puigmartí, Núria Mercè (2009)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The rapid drawdown condition arises when submerged slopes experience rapid reduction of the external water level. Classical analysis procedures are grouped in two classes: the “stress-based” undrained approach, recommended ...
  • Triggering and motion of landslides 

    Alonso Pérez de Agreda, Eduardo (The British Geotechnical Association, 2017-03-15)
    Audiovisual
    Open Access
    The velocity and motion of landslides, once equilibrium is lost, is necessary information for the estimation of the potential damage. The Lecture will describe concepts and modelling techniques addressing this problem. ...
