This paper deals with the landslides activated by piezometric level changes owing to rainfall.

Abstract

This paper deals with the landslides activated by piezometric level changes owing to rainfall. Generally, the main type of movement experienced by these landslides is a translational slide with low displacement rate. In addition, deformations are essentially concentrated within a narrow shear zone above which the unstable soil mass moves as a rigid body. In view of this evidence, a simple approach based on a sliding block model was recently proposed by Conte et al. (2017) for a preliminary evaluation of the mobility of these landslides. This method relates landslide movements to rain recordings. This constitutes a significant advantage for land protection purposes because future displacements could be directly predicted from expected rainfall scenarios. In the present paper, a case study is analyzed to assess the predictive capability of the above-mentioned approach.
