Abstract

Sub-theme 5.1 focuses on the interaction of landslides in natural and engineered slopes with the built environment. The associated socio-economic issues are particularly important given population growth and the associated demand for new and enhanced infrastructure. The papers included herein provide a wide-ranging overview of methodologies and techniques that can be used to identify the effects of landslides on buildings, infrastructure and large engineering works, as well as cultural heritage.
