Prof. Ng’s research group was very fortunate to have the company of Prof. Aronne Armanini of the University of Trento (in Italy) for several days in August. Prof. Armanini gave a fascinating seminar, covering topics such as how different types of geophysical flows may be quantifiably differentiated using rheological properties, as well as the governing equations that must be used to describe mixtures of grains and viscous fluids. He also discussed some of the mitigation measures for geophysical flows that are installed in Europe, covering how their effectiveness can be quantified and showing examples of undesirable designs.

New paper: Dry granular flow interaction with dual-barrier systems (Géotechnique)

The Géotechnique paper Dry Granular Flow Interaction with Dual-barrier Systems is now available online. Both small-scale flume tests and the finite-element package LS-DYNA were used to understand multiple mechanisms of interaction between flows and dual-barrier systems.
