WLF6 Call for Abstracts

Dear All,

We sent an application some months ago, later approved, about the Session 3.4 @ the next WLF6 (https://wlf6.org/forum-themes/#section-6322ba0-3) to be held in Sept 2023, in Florence.

The WLF6 call for abstracts is open.

The abstract submission is only possible online at the following link:

The deadline is 28 February 2023.

All submitted abstracts will be reviewed by the scientific committee after the submission deadline. Acceptance will be notified to the presenting author within 15 May 2023.

We need to promote WLF6 abstract submission and to invite researchers to join Session 3.4: https://wlf6.org/forum-themes/#section-6322ba0-3

Session 3.4. Physical and Numerical Modelling of Landslide-Structure-Interaction (LSI)

Many geo-disasters in the world are related to landslides. They endanger the resident populations, and cause severe economic and functional losses, especially in urbanized areas, due to direct damage to the existing structures and indirect costs related to the disruption of strategic corridors.

Landslide-Structure-Interaction (LSI) is a topical issue, and the new challenges consist in how to reconcile prevention and remediation actions with Sustainability Development Goals of UN Agenda 2030.

In such a framework, the recourse to innovative materials, new technical solutions and low-carbon options requires a clear understanding of the interaction mechanisms.

In this session, different types of landslides are very welcome: from slow-moving deep-seated landslides, to shallow flowslides and rock-falls. The consequent impact on pipelines, railways corridors or roads, houses (single or in a cluster) are also of interest.

Especially a focus on deformation mechanisms along the slope, in the landslide body and for the structure will be appreciated. Very welcome are also comparison of models towards field measurements and monitoring.

This session aims at bringing together laboratory and numerical experts to discuss the state of the art, sharing present and future perspectives.
