location and its volume (estimated up to 10 million m3), the CASSAS landslide
phenomenon, in the village of Salbertrand (TO), is directly menacing antropic
activities of high social value.
Among these the A32 motorway Torino-
Bardonecchia connecting the regional capital to the international Frejus tunnel,
the international railway Torino-Modane, and the national road SS.24 which
leads to the Monginevro pass.
The definition of the risk to which the area is
subject has been made by studying the territory from the geologicalenvironmental
point of view and it has allowed us to define a mathematical
model to simulate the behavior of the unstable mass in terms of geomechanical
and hydrogeological parameters.
The identification of the mechanisms and the
analysis of such parameters has been possible thanks to the results obtained from
several measurement campaigns and the management of a complex network of
monitoring instrumentation, that has provided a database from 1994.
study has focused on the computation of the crisis probability as a function of the
variation of the monitored parameters, defining threshold values.
On this basis,
networks of monitoring instruments have been installed and the procedure to
deal with false alarms has been defined.
From 1994 the landslide phenomenon has been the subject of investigations and
monitoring to recognize the status of the activities.
Initially the investigations ...
