Geotechnical Terrain Models and Types of Instabilities in the Durmitor Flysch Complex

Open access


The Durmitor flysch complex represents a specific formation both in lithological and engineering geological sense. In the engineering geological sense this lithological formation is characterized by anisotropic and heterogeneous geotechnical properties, which depend on the dominant members within each individual package, as well as their spatial position.The Durmitor flysch complex consists of five superposition bed packages, which are mutually substantially different in their lithological, hydrogeological and geotechnical properties. For the first time in geological literature, this paper distinguishes five types of terrain construction within the Durmitor flysch complex. Contemporary geodynamic processes and their character within the flysch formation are defined. Particular emphasis is put on landslides, which represent a contemporary geodynamic phenomenon with certain specificities.
