Probabilistic analysis of slope failure and debris flow considering the variability of material properties

Supervisor: Prof. Wei Wu & Prof. Hai-sui Yu

Objective: Quality assurance of simulations considering the variability of material properties, Publication of best practice document, Support in network training coordination;

Methodology: The comparison of the numerical simulations in WP2 and WP3 with documented real case landslides and debris flows is important to show the capability of the sophisticated numerical models to make reliable predictions. The variability of material properties in field requests a probabilistic analysis on the performed simulations.

Deliverable: Best practice document providing guidelines for numerical modelling and requirements on quality assurance considering the variability of material properties
