Numerical study of debris flows in presence of obstacles and retaining structures: a case study in the Italian Alps
Debris flows are one of the most frequent mass movement processes and occur in all regions with steep relief and at least occasional rainfall. Their high flow velocity, impact forces, and long runout, combined with poor temporal predictability, cause debris flows to be one of the most hazardous landslide types. An essential aspect of debris-flow risk management is the design of mitigation measures, which reduce the existing risk to an accepted level of residual risk, by reducing the potential damage that the moving mass can produce in terms of loss of human life and destruction of structures and ...
