Debris Flow 2010
|Event Date/Time: May 24, 2010||End Date/Time: May 26, 2010|
Higher population pressures on natural resources and increased activity in hazard-prone areas have the potential to increase the magnitude of hazards. This calls for improvements in the criteria used to identify debris flow risk areas and to design suitable prevention and mitigation measures.
The conference will provide a forum for engineers, scientists and managers from laboratories, industries, governments and academia to interchange knowledge and expertise in the following fields; erosion and slope instability, sediment transport, debris flow and debris flood data acquisition, debris flow phenomenology and laboratory tests. It will also allow the discussion of the most advanced, state-ofthe-art methodologies in monitoring, modelling, mechanics, hazard prediction and risk assessment.
This conference follows the success of the first meeting held in Rhodes, Greece (2006) and New Forest, UK (2008).
Conference topics include:
- Debris flow modelling
- Debris flow phenomenology
- Debris flow triggering
- Debris flow disaster mitigation
- Debris flow rheology and laboratory tests
- Landslide phenomena
- Debris and hyper-concentrated flows
- Structures and their effects on debris flow
- Active and passive disaster management
- Risk assessment
- Other mapping and vulnerability
- Cut and shape failure
- Sediment sources
- Structure and non-structural measure
- Field tests
