Geotechnical characterization of soils from a slope of the Serra do Mar, susceptible to landslides
Palavras-chave:Mass gravitational movements, Serra do Mar, Geotechnical characterization.
The mass gravitational movements are processes of transport of soils, rocks or vegetation, due mainly to the gravity force. These movements are characterized by the shear rupture of the soil and/or rock. Landslides is the most common type of gravitational movement in the climatic and geological dynamics of Brazil. The Serra do Mar (Sea Mountains), which extends for approximately 1,500 kilometers along the Brazilian east / south coast, presents a great incidence of these movements, because of its geomorphological, geological, climatic and vegetation characteristics. The objective of this research is the physicochemical and geotechnical characterization of soils collected from a slope of the Serra do Mar, susceptible to translational landslides.
