Description :
This study defines and describes Soil Mechanical Response Units (SMRU) for use as input parameters and is thus a combined heuristic and soil mechanical approach to landslide hazard assessment. SMRU's were delimited using a Geographical Information System (GIS) to combine equal geological and lithological characteristics. This approach has been tested at the northwestern Tertiary escarpment of Rheinhessen,Germany. In winter 1981/82 the test site experienced considerable damage caused by 42 landslides. Verification of the established hazard model was performed using these failures and shows the successful application of SMRU's and their use in regional landslide hazard modelling.
