Abstract

The touristic zone of Vlora has a very beautiful nature where there is a marvelous combination of the sea, hills and mountains. This zone has different pollutions, one of them is acoustic and gazes pollution from means of transport. With intention to reduce this pollution and to secure a commodity, rapid and sure circulation of the means of transport to the touristic jonian seaside area was decided the construction of the Vlora By-pass road. The new road passes in hills and field terrain. In one part of the new road we have made a combination geological-geophysical and geotechnical study, with intention to evidence the dangerous phenomena’s as slides etc which can appear during the construction period. In this paper we would like to present this study, the behavior of the soil in this zone under static and dynamic loads from geophysics data and accomplished in site test. Also we want to present some conclusions for the manner of the sure construction of the road in these conditions.

Seismic Refraction Data and Dangerous Phenomena’s in By-Pass Vlora Road

Chicago, Illinois
