The work to be carried out is divided in 10 Work Packages, which are described in the following. The research activities which entail experimentation, theoretical work, numerical and analytical modelling are divided into 6 work packages.
- WP 1 to 4 will focus on improving our understanding of the physical phenomena causing geohazards via experimentation, theoretical and numerical work, study of past case histories and knowledge transfer between groups with different expertise. The aim of these research activities is to reach a level of understanding of the phenomena causing geohazards such that physicomechanical based models may be used instead of the current black box tools in the production of susceptibility and hazard maps.
- WP 5 and 6 will develop the numerical methods needed to carry out sound engineering modelling of the physical phenomena causing geohazards.
- WP 7 will entail training activities, WP 8 management of researchers’ exchanges, WP 9 dissemination of results and WP 10 outreach activities to the public.
