Theme 2 Deep-Reaching Gravitational Deformations of Mountain Slopes Relationship Between Tectonic and Gravitational Deformations Technical-Economic Importance of These Deformations for Engineering Structures Reports of Panelists

Summary

The paper deals with geological-tectonical structures on which the slope movements take place. The analysis of about 9,000 slope deformations registered in Czechoslovakia shows that each deformation is related to a geologic-tectonical structure favourable for slope movements. Described are three types of such structures.

Les structures géologiques et tectoniques—La condition fondamentale du dévelopment des mouvements sur la pente

Résumé

A peu près 9.000 déformations par gravité sur les pentes ont été mises en évidence en Tchécoslovaquie. L’analyse de celles-ci démontra que chacune d’elles est conditionnée par une structure géologique et tectonique favorable pour le développemet des mouvements de gravité sur la pente. Trois types différents des structures sont distingués et traités.
