Abstract

«RÉSUMÉ: Les glissements de terrain sont reconnus comme des dangers naturels avec des dommages majeurs qui peuvent causer un danger pour la vie humaine et/ou des pertes matérielles en raison de leur comportement destructeur. Ils se produisent généralement près des régions montagneuses (classées comme des glissements de terrain non submergés ou sous-aériens) ou près des zones côtières telles que les océans, les lacs, les berges des rivières, les baies (considérées comme des glissements de terrain sous-marins) qui génèrent des vagues destructrices de grande amplitude, semblables à des tsunamis.» et «----------ABSTRACT: Landslides are recognized as natural hazards with massive casualties and loss of properties due to their damaging behavior. They usually happen near the mountainous regions (classified as unsubmerged or sub-aerial landslides) or near coastal areas such as oceans, lakes, riverbanks, bays (considered as submarine landslides) that generates destructive tsunami-like waves with high amplitudes. Deformable landslides usually can be regarded as the downward movement of granular material on an inclined and/or flat plane due to their nature. In this regard, in the present study, we experimentally investigate the gravity-driven slide of granular materials for various slope angles, material types, bed roughness, and flow regimes in 2D and 3D experimental setups.»
