This ebook was once written with the target of offering geotechnical engineers with a pragmatic guide on tips on how to do something about landslides in addition to of acquaint ing them with the current country of actual basics and medical expla countries for the phenomenon of landslides. The publication is predicated on my own studies, accumulated over a long time of labor as geotechnical engineer on building websites in Austria and plenty of different elements of the area, which I additionally use in my lectures on the Technical college of Graz, Austria. the tactic of stabilizing lands lides by means of short-circuit conductors has been built alone and has been patented in Germany and Italy. a few guides already exists (see References) in this strategy, and naturally I additionally deal during this publication with its theoretical and functional elements. right here i need to thank my assistants, Messrs. J. Dalmatiner, okay. Eigenberger, E. Garber, H. Kienberger, R. Pötscher, and W. Prodinger, for operating with me on quite a few tasks and for supporting me within the drafting of a few chapters of this booklet, Mr. A. Trippl for getting ready the illustrations, and my spouse for lots of a Sunday labored via with me.
