What is debris flow? -- Models for mechanics of flow -- Initiation, development and declination of debris flow -- Characteristics of fully-developed debris flow -- Processes and geomorphology of deposition -- Sediment runoff models that include debris flow processes -- Debris flow disasters and their reproduction by computer simulations -- Countermeasures for debris flow disasters.
This is the 2nd edition of one of the most comprehensive accounts of debris flow, describing both theoretical and applied aspects. In the first part, the fundamental mechanical characteristics are discussed, including flow characteristics, type classification, mechanics, occurrence and development, fully developed flow, and deposition processes. The second part sheds light on the application of the theories presented in computer-simulated reproductions of real disasters. Special attention is paid to debris flow controlling structures, design effectiveness and performance, soft countermeasure problems, such as the identification of debris flow prone ravines and the prediction of occurrence by means of precipitation threshold.
