Shallow Geophysical Mass Flows Down Arbitrary Topography

Advances in Geophysical and Environmental Mechanics and Mathematics
Model Equations in Topography-fitted Coordinates, Numerical Simulation and Back-calculation of Disastrous Events
This book lays a foundation for formulating depth-averaged equations describing shallow geophysical mass flows - landslides, avalanches or debris flows. Offering detailed derivation of model equations, its stimulating examples show how the models are applied.
Introduction.- Topography-fitted coordinate system.- An alternative of topography-fitted coordinates - unified coordinate system.- Entrainment and deposition at the basal surface.- Continuum mechanical models in a topography-fitted coordinate system.- Numerical examples and experimental validation.- Back-calculation of natural disaster events.- Summary and outlook.
Geophysical mass flows, such as landslides, avalanches or debris flows, are frequent mass movement processes in mountain areas and often cause disastrous damage. This book lays a foundation for formulating the depth-averaged equations describing the shallow geophysical mass flows over non-trivial topography. It consists of the detailed derivation of the model equations. The stimulating numerical examples demonstrate how the proposed models are applied. All this make this book accessible to a wide variety of readers, especially senior undergraduate and graduate students of fluid mechanics, civil engineering, applied mathematics, engineering geology, geophysics or engineers who are responsible for hazard management.
