Advisor: Mr. Nicolò Doglioni, Geologist Project Description:
The municipal road connecting the settlement of Le Forna (Ponza) with the Cala dell’Acqua port, is important for the local development of tourism and craft trade. As predicted by geologists, in 2007 an important rockfall took place involving the area above the port. To verify the new structural situation and stability of the slope above the road and in order to organize the proper interventions, a geomechanical model has been developed. This model allowed to estimate a dynamic safety factor for the slope and propose the correct interventions.
Geo mechanical survey and stability analysis before and after the rock fall (limit equilibrium, finite and distinct method)
