Geologic hazards along part of Al-Sayl-Alkabeir Al-Jammum road in Saudi Arabia


Geologic hazards along part of Al-Sayl-Alkabeir Al-Jammum road in Saudi Arabia



Environmental Geology 39(1): 20-24



DOI: 10.1007/s002540050433

The geological hazards along part of Al-Sayl Alkabeir Al-Jammum road, western Saudi Arabia, were studied by the use of the sterographic projection to define the types of possible failures and the magnitude of safety factor on each slope face The studied area consists of granite and granodiorite rocks that were cut by acidic and basic dikes There are four sets of structural discontinuities which, besides a few strike slip faults, constitute the planes of weakness that lead to a variety of possible mode failures The stability analysis indicates that sections of the road are unstable as their cut slopes exceed the maximum safe slope angles which range between 65degree and 73degree.
