Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Sediment Transport Modeling


Brief descriptions of the properties of mud and debris flow and hyperconcentrated stream flow materials and their importance to the descriptions and modeling of these flows are presented. Knowledge of mud and debris flows is sufficient to construct useful models provided adequate measurements of the mechanical properties of the material are made, and provided that these properties are incorporated in the model appropriately. Measurements on actual flows are limited to reconstruction after their occurrence, but such reconstructions are important for enlarging our knowledge of their behavior and for verifying models, and should be continued.
