Abstract

This research represents outcrops of rocks at Cliffs of Tigris river ( Terraces ), most are Conglomerate, Sandstone, Siltstone and Clay stone. The research covers several aspects ; it includes a collection of field information from unstable rock slopes at (6) stations representing all the rock failure types that happened or likely to happen . In each station rock slopes are completely surveyed ; also the rocks are described in an engineering way and a complete discontinuity survey is carried out according to Anon (1972,1977) and their relationship with the rock failure is established. The field study shows that rock failures include toppling (mostly insecondary type ), rock fall. Point load test shows that Compressive Strength of the rock,( very weak – strong, σC = 0.450 – 51.480 )Mpa.
