Abstract

Protecting cultural heritage from water-soil interaction related threats is a current issue and the prediction of the effects induced on buildings by landslides is very challenging. The main difficulties lie in the lack of detailed information about landside movements as well as in the modeling of soil-structure interaction. This paper study the effects of a particular category of slow-moving landslides, namely active rotational and translational slides with movement rates of the order of some mm/year, on buildings of historical and cultural interestsuch as churches. Three case studies located in the Liguria region (Italy) were analyzed by performing FEM and LEM numerical analyses on sections representative of the slope.
