NUMERICAL MODELLING OF RAPID, FLOW-LIKE LANDSLIDES ACROSS 3-D TERRAINS: A TSUNAMI SQUARES APPROACH TO EL PICACHO LANDSLIDE, EL SALVADOR, SEPTEMBER 19, 1982 (2015)
Wang J. , Ward S. N. et al.
<p>Flow-like landslides are rapidly moving fluid–solid mixtures that can cause significant destruction along paths that run far from their original sources. Existing models for run out prediction and motion simulation of flow-like landslides have many ...

We apply the recently developed "tsunami ball" method to construct a physics based simulation of the 1963 Vaiont reservoir landslide and flood disaster.
PARTICULATE KINEMATIC SIMULATIONS OF DEBRIS AVALANCHES: INTERPRETATIONOF DEPOSITS AND LANDSLIDE SEISMIC SIGNALS OF MOUNT SAINT HELENS,1980 MAY 18 (2006)
In this paper is presented a new class of granular landslide models in which avalanches are simulated with large numbers of independent particles moving under the influence of topographically derivedgravitational and centripetal acceleration. This model is ...
Geological evidence suggests that during a future eruption, Cumbre Vieja Volcano on the Island of La Palmamay experience a catastrophic failure of its west flank, dropping 150 to 500 km3 of rock into the sea. Using a geologically reasonable estimate of landslide ...
A total of 166 observations of sea-level change, 130 measurements of elevation difference, and 16 determinations of horizontal strain provide an excellent view of the (quasi-)static source process of the great 1960 Chilean earthquake.
