TXT-tool 3.007-1.1: Mechanical-Mathematical Modeling and Monitoring for Landslide Processes

  • Valentina Svalova


Mechanical-mathematical model of high viscous fluid was used for modeling of the matter movement on landslide slopes. Equation of continuity and approximated Navier–Stokes equation for slow motions in a thin layer of the matter were used. The results of modelling give possibility to define the place of highest velocity on landslide surface, that could be the best place for monitoring post failure position. The proposed model can be used for comparison of calculated and measured velocities of the matter and gives possibility to investigate some fundamental aspects of the matter movement on landslide slope.
