Abstract

ABSTRACT

The Gadora village landslide zone situated along National Highway 58 has become very active in recent years. The landslide zone is causing a lot of damage to property along the highway and endangering the lives of people living uphill and downhill of the slopes. In the present study, a combined geological, geophysical and geotechnical investigation has been carried out to establish the subsurface layering system of the landslide. Undisturbed and disturbed samples were collected along the depth of the boreholes to determine the engineering properties of different layers. The subsurface layering and drainage patterns of the slope were inferred from electrical resistivity tomography conducted at different stretches of the slope. The present paper describes the layering system along with the engineering and physical properties obtained from the integrated geo‐investigation. The established near‐surface geometric, hydrological and material model enabled the stability study of the slope.
