Contribution to the Mapping of the Landslide of Ain El Hammam (Algeria)


Article Preview

The town of Ain El Hammam is based in crest of a hill affected by an active and extensive landslide. The complexity and significant evolution of this instability makes risk management more difficult. We realized in this paper a mapping of the slope and a study of risk and hazard-induced by ground movements in this region and this by taking into account the probable causes of instability. The principal advantage of the model of assessment of hazard developed is the possibility to realize punctual studies of the risk on natural or artificial slopes. Moreover, this work constitutes just a contribution to the safety management of Ain El Hammam.
