Examining the impact force of debris flow in a check dam from small-flume experiments
Debris flow is one of the most hazardous disasters in mountain regions of Korea. Rainfall-induced debris flows have occurred more frequently during past decades due to climate changes. Especially, its threat on many lives and properties in urban or suburban areas have increased. To control debris-flow disaster, check dams have been constructed in forest watersheds since 1985. Although check dams that recently constructed in Korea are expected to function as debris-flow barriers, impact force has not been considered during design procedure. For effective structure design regarding debris-flow ...
