New article published by an IRPI researcher on the Springer journal “Landslides”
Mauro Rossi, an IRPI researcher, is a co-author of a new paper published in “Landslides” (Impact Factor 3.6): “Reliability of water content estimation by profile probe and its effect on slope stability”.
The paper examines the calibration procedure of a probe (i.e. dielectric sensor) for measuring the soil water content and analyses its effects on the slope stability analysis. In shallow partially saturated soils, the use of inappropriate calibration equations may result in differences in soil water content estimate up to 10 percentage points, affecting the correct estimation of the suction stress and of the Factor of Safety.
