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 developpment of tourism and craft trade. As predicted by the geologist, 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 it has beend developed. Through this model has been possible to estimate a dynamic safety factor for the slope and indicate, to the responsible enterprise, the correct interventions.Activities Performed:
Geo mechanical survey and stability analysis before and after the rock fall (limit equilibrium, finite and distinct method)
Definition of the hazard and in the design of the interventions on the rock slope (re-profiling).
