Abstract

The study of the landslides that occurred on the hillside between Covurlui plateau and Brates Lake is presented, together with geotechnical investigations performed in order to establish the trigger mechanism of the registered cyclical instability phenomena. Laboratory test results showing the peculiarities of the clay strata, mineralogical, physical, and mechanical properties are discussed, and stability analysis results are commented, in order to substantiate the proposed consolidation measures.
