Levee formation in debris flows and avalanches

Levees are a feature of many gravity current flows, yet their formation is not fully understood. This project will track their formation in laboratory scale experiments, and develop more...

Crushable granular flows

In both earthquakes and landslides, grains are often crushed during flow. This changes the flowing behaviour, and causes the flow to accelerate. This project will develop an experim more...
