Abstract

The paper refers to the foundation design of a bridge situated on active landslides in the under-carpathian zone, in the South - Eastern part of Romania. The design philosophy involves two possible sliding mass stabilisation measures: a). to develop retaining works on each brook's bank separately to the bridge foundations system; b). to design the foundations themselves so that they should be able to support the earth thrust induced by the banks instability. In order to choose the optimal solution, geological and geotechnical researches were performed. Finally, the solution of a discontinuous retaining structure located upstream the bridge abutments was adopted.
