Landslides and debris flow pose serious threats in mountainous terrains. The combination of high speed and enormous debris mass has devastating effects, pointing at the importance of reliable predictions. Yet serious insufficiencies in their knowledge and hence in the computational modelling of landslides and debris flow have to be admitted. The multi–phase and –scale nature of debris with varying composition in space and time due to complex segregation phenomena calls for an interdisciplinary approach, bringing together expertise from fields like engineering, geotechnics, physics, and environmental management.

Objective

To provide high quality training to a new generation of multidisciplinary researchers, capable of working in the challenging field of advanced modelling of landslides and debris flow.

An extended lecture on computational plasticity as well as lectures in the fields of advanced soil mechanics, testing and modeling of unsaturated soils, and continuum modelling of granular flows down an incline will be provided.
