Mini - symposium Title

MS0017  Applications of Computational Mechanics in Simulation, Risk Assessment and Scenario Investigations by Hazardous Flows (Flood, Debris Flow, Density Flows, Landslide, Granular Flows, etc.)


Natural disasters, such as floods, debris flows, density flows in reservoir or on seabed, or avalanching landslides, are extremely destructive, so that the measurements of these flows are rarely available. In addition to laboratory experiments, numerical simulation is a powerful tool not only for mimicking the flow behaviors but also for improving the understanding the complexity of the flow characteristics. In this MS, we cordially invite contributions from various branches of researches concerning the studies on the flow dynamics and/or countermeasures for hazard mitigation. We are also enthusiastic about exploring the advanced computational techniques and the associated applications to areas like risk map construction, virtual reality (VR), 3D user-interactive illustration, and advanced graphics to digital twin use cases
