Abstract

A rain-induced landslide has occured in Guyon Village, Tengklik Tawangmangu District Karanganyar Regency, Central Java Province, Indonesia on February 2009. The movement was initiated by crack occurrence, 30 cm in depth and 2 meter in length. Such crack continuously developed in depth, extention and numbers, until then it resulted in land subsidence up to 260 cm in depth. Accordingly, ten houses were damaged and ten of families must be evacuated. This subsidence is very potential to further grow and create more consequences for human life and houses / land damage. Therefore, this research is carried out to understand the influence of geological factors and rainfall to the landslide phenomena. This research conducted engineering geology investigation such as mapping, drilling, insitu test, XRD test, soil mechanic test and slope stability analysis by limit equilibrium method i.e. Seep/W and Slope/W. By those research activities, the cause and mechanism of landslide can be understood. Rainfall characteristics which triggered such landslide can also be identified. Based on those investigations, it is found that the landslide occurred in slow rate sliding (creep) due to the control of slope stratigraphy conditions and gentle slope inclination, which is induced by rainfall. Stratigraphy condition that plays important role in landslide mechanism are the permeable layers consisted of sandy silt (shear strength 12 kPa) and silty sandstone (shear strength 18 kPa) overlaid above impermeable andesite breccia (shear strength 104 kPa). Undulating slope may induce landslide in creep rotational type. Based on slope stability simulation, it is known that rainfall triggered landslide is rainfall 20 mm/ day average precipitation in 55 days and rainfall 20 mm/ day average precipitation in 49 days followed by one day with 178 mm/ day average precipitation.
