Abstract

Himachal Pradesh forming an important segment of Himalaya mountain system has experienced many landslides and has been the focus of study for over hundred years. Landslides are also recognized as Landslip, which is a type of mass wasting including a wide range of earth movements. This thesis includes the assessment of landslide occurred at Kotropi village on 13th august 2017, this landslide is classified as debris flow and failure mechanism was deep rotational failure. The main triggering factor was due to heavy rainfall of current monsoon season, causing the third reactivation of Kotropi landslide since 1977 and 1997, about 46 people were dead in these shocking incidence. Numerous experiments were done to overcome the landslide problem in the Kotropi region. On the sample, standard Proctor test and direct shear test were performed. Initial investigation shows that soil was cohesion less; its shear strength and maximum dry density were very low. Remedial measure are suggested as to construct a permanent retaining wall followed by a bridge over the road alignment area for channelizing the water coming from upslope areas, protecting the upslope areas with the help of plantation to bind up soil , Rock catches fences and Water drainage system in the crown area. The present study lays the basics for further work in assessment of rainfall induced landslides in Himalayan region.
