Abstract

Landslides are geological phenomena that pose significant threats to communities and infrastructure. Understanding the soil engineering properties of landslide-prone areas is crucial for effective risk assessment and mitigation strategies. This study investigates the soil engineering properties of landslide-prone areas in Karo Regency, focusing on understanding the dominant soil composition after landslide events. In-situ testing, laboratory experiments, and geological surveys are conducted to examine key soil parameters. The research findings reveal that the soil affected by landslides in Karo Regency is predominantly composed of sand. This knowledge can significantly contribute to enhancing disaster preparedness and mitigating future landslide-related risks in Karo Regency and similar landslide-prone regions worldwide.
