Potential geological hazards in the Rječina valley

February 14, 2019

Geological hazards are geological processes that can potentially lead to material destruction and human victims. If these negative effects occur, we are talking about a natural disaster. To understand natural disasters and assess their impact (risk) on humans, it is necessary to determine: Where some types of hazards could occur and why? How often these […]

Point load test (PLT)

February 7, 2019

The Point load test is an index test by which the rock is classified according to the strength. The test can be used to estimate other characteristics of intact rocks with which it correlates, such as uniaxial compressive and tensile strength. The test determines the strength index values at a point (Is (50)) and the […]

Using unmanned aircraft systems and 3D models for designing slope remediation projects

January 31, 2019

The demand for faster design and construction work, especially in transport infrastructure and infrastructure projects, has led to the need for faster and more accurate field recording and data processing methods. One of the newer technologies used in the last fifteen years is point cloud technology. This is a set of points of known spatial […]

Block toppling

January 24, 2019

Block toppling represents one of the most common types of instability, specifically structurally conditioned failure within the rock mass. Toppling occurs on slopes in rock masses where the strata dip steeply away from the slope, striking parallel or sub-parallel to it. In toppling, rotation of unstable blocks in overhangs occurs due to failure at the […]
